Protect Sacred Water Event

Wednesday, February 19

Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light invites you to join them Wednesday, February 19th for a spiritually grounded action in solidarity with Indigenous water protectors at Governor Walz’s office. Our Sacred Waters, Indigenous treaty rights and a livable future already threatened by climate change are being put at risk by the Enbridge’s Line 3 oil pipeline. On February 3rd the Public Utilities Commission voted 3-1 to allow this project to continue despite massive public opposition. Together we’ll lift up our voices in prayer, song, meditation, and sacred ritual to send our moral message to the Governor: Protect Sacred Water- Stop Line 3.  RSVP to attend here.
