WHAT: In June, a delegation of Jews from the DC area joined American Indian water protectors to protest the proposed Line 3 pipeline that would run from Alberta to Wisconsin. This pipeline threatens Anishinaabe livelihoods and culture, the Mississippi River, and the global climate. Join folks from around the country to learn about the Line 3 pipeline and why you should be part of the efforts to halt its construction. Hear from Rev. Jim Bear Jacobs, Program Director for Racial Justice, Minnesota Council of Churches, and DC-area Jews about the hopeful resistance to Line 3 and what you can do to stop its destructive path.

WHEN: Thursday, September 30, 8:00 – 9:00 PM Eastern Time

REGISTRATION: Participation is free but registration is required to receive the link to join the webinar.
