To the Community,

On Tuesday, November 15th, 2:30-4PM join a nationwide day of action in solidarity with those at Standing Rock, and demand the Federal government and the Army Corps reject this pipeline.

Location: Army Corps of Engineers 601 Startare Dr #100 Woodley Island Eureka, CA
Time: 2:30-4PM

We will peacefully gather to sing, dance, and pray. Theodore Hernandez of the Wiyot Tribe will be leading us in prayer. Also, we would love y’all to help capture photos from the event.

Indigenous leaders are calling on us to take to the streets and disrupt “business-as-usual” one week after the election to demand that President Obama’s Army Corps of Engineers and the incoming administration stop the Dakota Access Pipeline — and all those after it.

See you there! Water is Life!
