NoLNG253~ A discussion at The Evergreen State College

June 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm PDT

Wednesday, June 6 from 6:00-7:30. Purce Hall (building to the west of Red Square), Room 7. Evergreen State College.

Two active participants in the indigenous-led movement against a proposed fossil fuel facility in Tacoma, Dakota Case and Claudia Riedener, will be speaking about how the facility would threaten public health and safety, climate stability, and the Puyallup Tribe’s treaty rights. The speakers will also discuss some lessons about political action from their movement and how people in Olympia can support their movement. This event is free and open to the public, and all are welcome. Come show solidarity with the Puyallup Tribe and learn how you can help! There will be time for audience questions at the end. Hope to see you there!

Dakota Case is a father, a fisherman, and a member of the Water Warrior movement within the Puyallup Tribe of Washington State.

Claudia Riedener is with Redefine Tacoma, whose mission is to move the greater Tacoma region from fossil fuels to 100% renewable, zero-carbon energy sources.

Directions: Purce Hall is on the west side of Red Square, between the library and the bus stop. If arriving by car, please stop at the parking booth at the main campus entrance. Two-hour passes are $2, and all-day passes are $3. Campus map: https://www.evergreen.edu/sites/default/files/tour/images/evergreen-map.png (Please click the map to enlarge it.)
