This is a virtual event
Healing the earth means healing our people. That’s why on Monday we’re lifting up struggles from across the nation to protect our land and freedom from the evils of ecological devastation, poverty wages, environmental racism and denial of health care. From the struggle to defend Apache sacred land in Oak Flats from a corporate mining giant to Cancer Alley in Louisiana to toxic factories in West Virginia and Chicago, to name just a few, we’ll hear directly from communities that are fighting back and demanding economic and environmental justice.
Join us on March 1, 2021 for Moral Monday: Heal the Earth, Heal our People at 3pm ET / 12pm PT and hear the stories of communities who have been targeted with destructive practices by corporations and governments, but are building movements that hold the key to a sustainable future. We’ll continue to push Congress and the White House to enact our 14 Policy Priorities to Heal the Nation.
We’ll also hear about the struggle of farmers in Mississippi, fights against pipelines in Tennessee and Minnesota, the recent snowstorm and power grid outage that devastated Texas, the continual struggle for clean water in Flint and more.
We demand the nation respect and ensure the rights and sovereignty of Indigenous peoples, including the free expression of religion and the protection of sacred lands and practices. We also demand a transition to a green economy, including a federal green jobs guarantee, to build the infrastructure we need to collectively survive and thrive. Join us.
Forward together, not one step back!
