Bellingham Bannering & Teach-In!
Start: Saturday, September 15, 2018•12:00 PM
End: Saturday, September 15, 2018• 3:00 PM
Join the Red Line Salish Sea for bannering on the Railroad Trail I-5 overpass from 12 noon to 3:00 PM to raise awareness for two important causes: The need to protect the Salish Sea from fossil fuel extraction and transport and the call for immediate action in response to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW). https://www.facebook.com/events/2127625300783699/
Our event recognizes that these two issues are intrinsically connected and must be addressed. The event is sponsored in concert with the regional Salish Sea Day of Action: https://www.facebook.com/events/401663887019280/
To support the I-5 bannering we will host a teach-in and BBQ/potluck in the adjacent Memorial Park. The teach-in will include speakers, storytellers, and performers who will address the themes noted above.
RLSS will provide BBQ grill and meat fixings. Please support with bringing your favorite potluck dish and non-alcoholic drink to share with the community! Also, please bring your own dish, utensils, and cup.
