Indigenous Land & Water Protectors Webinar
May 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Across the Pacific Northwest, Indigenous land & water protectors are fighting back against the threat of oil & gas exports through their traditional lands. From Wet’suwet’en territory to the Klamath River and beyond, these battles to protect communities from the harm of the fossil fuel industry are connected.
On Thursday, May 28, from 2-3:30PM PST join Indigenous leaders from across the region for a discussion about their communities’ fights against fossil fuel export projects including the Coastal Gas Link pipeline, Jordan Cove LNG, Tacoma LNG, and the Trans Mountain tar sands pipeline.

The panel will share stories from their struggles against the fossil fuel industry & colonization, examine the connections between these battles throughout the region, and tell you how to take action in solidarity with their communities.
