This earth is our mother, we must take care of her.
Inspired to act in solidarity with #NODAPL (No Dakota Access Pipeline) and #WATERISLIFE (Protecting our natural water sources), community members are coming together on Nov. 6th to raise money, supplies and awareness about the illegal oil pipeline project in North Dakota and the need to protect our own drinking water from contamination.
Connecting this benefit to earth stewardship and environmental protection around our local area, it highlights the need to honor and preserve sacred sites everywhere with a focus on kinder and more respectful treatment toward indigenous peoples.
Our event will include an opening prayer and water blessings, several topical speakers, musical acts, indigenous dancing, live art, a silent auction, info and letter/petition writing tables, vending booths, food and drink for sale, and a donation area drop-off for blankets and supplies, ending with a closing ceremony. This will be a family friendly event with games and art to engage the youth as well as educating the public.
Please find it in your heart to make a donation to this cause. Profits collected will be sent to the Standing Rock Tribe in North Dakota, will be used to buy needed supplies to be delivered by us after the benefit, and a small portion will be given to support local indigenous rights, protecting the environment. This event is sponsored by The Peace and Justice center of Sonoma County and the Sebastopol Grange #306.
Any and all donations are welcomed and gratefully received.
