March 2021 - We will join the global day of interfaith action: Sacred People Sacred earth
Locally, we will join the interfaith event to call on President Biden to Stop Line 3!
The program will include a land acknowledgement, Interfaith prayers, silent meditation, and a few mins to collectively sound the alarm on our fossil fuel based economy and climate change.
We will gather at the Lake Merritt amphitheater and the event should last about 1 hour. It will begin at 11:00 a.m.
Please wear a mask, socially distance, and bring anything you can to make noise: drums, gongs, bells, chimes, pots and pans (if you bring an Instrument that requires you to blow through it, please be conscious about creating lots of distance between you and others).
This is part of a global Interfaith day of action with over 300 events representing millions of people of faith across the world. There will be dozens of events across the United States calling on President Biden to reject Line 3. https://actionnetwork.org/events/sacred-people-sacred-earth-interfaith-action-to-stop-line-3?source=direct_link&.
