Tar Sands Resistance March, June 6, 2015

Tar Sands Resistance March
June 6th, 2015   Noon – 4pm
Rally at Minnesota State Capitol to Protect Our Water

Join Future First and thousands of others at a massive Midwest Rally. Thousands will gather in the Twin Cities for the Tar Sands Resistance March — the largest anti-tar sands event ever in the region. We are coming together to send a clear message: keep toxic tar sands out of America’s Heartland, fight for clean water, clean energy, and a safe climate!

Hear from great leaders in the movement including‘s cofounder Bill McKibben (yes, he’ll be here in person!), Kandi Mossett from the Indigenous Environmental Network, Rev. Yearwood from the Hip Hop Caucus, the Sierra Club’s executive director Michael Brune, and MN350’s Akilah Sanders-Reed. Dozens of groups are organizing buses to come to St. Paul from as far away as Kansas and Ohio.

Yes, that’s our own Jan Neville in the photo and she, along with other women and men from Future First will be at the March and Rally.

Showing up, taking a stand for the Future is “What Love Looks Like.” Be there!
