The racial uprisings of the past several years have come with increased awareness about the current and historical mistreatment of Native Americans. This has led some to ask how they can better support their Indigenous Neighbors. At the same time more and more people are becoming concerned about the health and safety of our planet. Activists and community leaders are starting to bring attention to Environmental Justice highlighting how pollution and exploitation of natural resources are disproportionately harming marginalized peoples.
There are ways to support both Indigenous peoples and our environment. One of those ways is joining the fight to save Oak Flat. The Apache sacred land of Oak Flat in Arizona is under threat by the wealthiest copper mining companies in the world, ending decades of government protection. The mining operation would leave a crater the size of the Eiffel Tower below ground and create a toxic wasteland in the surrounding communities from the mining debris.
Please join us for a webinar and discussion with special guest speaker Pastor Carol Rose, an Arizona resident and a passionate supporter of Indigenous Peoples and the fight to save Oak Flat. We will be exploring topics like One Settlers solidarity with Indigenous Neighbors, a path to repair with both the Earth and the People. We will also be exploring questions regarding faith like what might a good Christian do? And how this might change us?
The session will also include ways to take direct action in the fight to save Oak Flat.
