cafealondraflyer2016.png

On June 29th, join us at Little Earth in Minneapolis for light refreshments and an intimate conversation about how to connect and strengthen ongoing struggles to protect the Great Lakes from oil pipelines and sulfide mines. We'll hear from 3 visionary women leaders: Winona LaDuke of Honor the Earth, Paula Maccabee of Water Legacy, and Alondra Cano of the Minneapolis City Council. Help us build a Twin Cities base of supporters, EJ organizers, allies and families willing to speak for the water, the treaties, the wild rice, and future generations.  Extreme extraction requires extreme organizing!

Food will be served from 5:00 - 5:30 p.m.

Program begins at 5:30 p.m.

Guest Speakers:
Winona LaDuke - Anishinaabe author, international environmental activist, and Honor the Earth Executive Director.

Paula Maccabee - Environmental lawyer and former St. Paul City Council Member, Advocacy Director and Counsel for WaterLegacy, one of the groups leading the charge against sulfide mining.  http://waterlegacy.org/

Alondra Cano - Minneapolis City Council member (9th ward), and the first Latina to sit on the Mpls Council.  Tireless advocate for racial, economic, and environmental justice.   http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/ward9/

Thank you for the support from our allies - MN350, MPIRG and Sierra Club.
