Environmental Justice: Centering the Voices of Earth and Territory Protectors

We are happy to be co-sponsors of this event, Thursday, April 22nd at 2:00 PM PST, from Witness for Peace Solidarity Collective!

“Join us on Earth Day to listen to voices of protectors of the earth, water, and the seeds. In collaboration with our Colombian partner, Congreso de Los Pueblos (The People’s Congress), our event centers voices of earth protectors in resilience. The People’s Congress formed in 2010 to develop a popular and unified intersectional front to stand against environmental destruction, war and violent dispossession. Let’s gather to listen, to deepen our understanding of the significance of territories and to celebrate our connection to the earth. Register for the event here
