Come stand with us to protect our waters, our salmon, qwe’lhol’mechen (orcas), Treaty rights, Indigenous lifeways. Meet at the border to show that no line divides us, we are of one mind, when it come to protecting our shared home.
Tribal and First Nation leaders, together with environmental groups and faith organizations, address the question: What should be done to heal the Salish Sea?
Speakers, music, water blessing, unity circle. Family friendly. Bring red, wear red.
