Here’s your chance to boost the resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline at Sacred Stone and support the indigenous-led environmental protection work that’s happening right here in Portland. Come to a dessert fundraiser and donate what you can..and a raffle! Plus, meet folks from around the area who are supporting this work too! Wednesday, September 7th 6-7:30PM at the gazebo at Peninsula Park in Portland. The folks defending their land, their treaties, and clean water for millions are on the frontlines. We need to keep up our support to make sure that simple stuff, like material needs, don’t come between them and the protection of their land. Portland has 9th largest Native American population in the nation. From fighting for a stronger cleanup of the Portland Harbor Superfund site to helping defeat coal export terminals and more, Native American folks are often on the frontlines here too. That’s why half of the funds raised on Wednesday will go to the Native American Youth and Family Center's (NAYA) Portland Youth and Elders Council. http://nayapdx.org/community/community-engagement-advocacy/portland-youth-elders-council/ We hope you can join us. Eat dessert. Donate what you can. Meet folks. There are other ways you can help out! If you can’t make it on September 7th and want to donate directly to the Sacred Stone camp, here’s a link to their GoFundMe page https://www.gofundme.com/sacredstonecamp. We also need a few excellent bakers to make dessert. If that’s you, fill out this form. We can pick up the dessert in advance if you can’t make it to the actual event. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfI08azvH17NrUu6OUFP0lbO3xUhmCG9yVsF05UMAJHgwgZgA/viewform?c=0&w=1 Here’s the re-cap: WHEN: Wednesday, September 7th 6-7:30PM WHERE: Peninsula Park gazebo – North Ainsworth and Albina.
