Indigenous and community leaders will speak on the connections linking oil projects, climate impacts, and indigenous rights, and in particular the connections between Canadian tar sands oil, the proposed expansion of the Trans Mountain Pipeline, and the proposed dredging of San Francisco Bay to bring large tankers of tar sands oil to Phillips 66 refinery in Rodeo. The speakers—Pennie Opal Pant, Isabella Zizi, and Andrés Soto—will share strategies to stop these destructive projects, protect frontline communities, and protect the sacred system of life.
The event is free and open to the public.
