Idle No More

Grassroots movement for indigenous sovereignty and protection of water, air, land and all creation for future generations!

Wednesday, April 9, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

Arlene Francis Center, 99 6th St., Santa Rosa

Meet Jess Gordon and Nine Wilson, two of the founders of Idle No More. Idle No More was founded in Canada just over a year ago by Indigenous women resisting the government's breaking of treaties, the resource exploitation of First Nations land, tar sand extraction and the many pipelines required to transport the sludge. The vision of the movement revolves around Indigenous Ways of Knowing. Idle No More has become an inspiration to indigenous sovereignty and environmental groups around the world.

There will be drumming by the Native Resistance Drum Group, music, and a presentation and discussion of Idle No More with Jess and Nina.

This is a fundraiser for Idle No More - $10 donation suggested, but no one turned away.

Sponsored by Peace & Justice Center of Sonoma County, Healdsburg Peace Project, SRJC American Indian Council, 350 Sonoma County, Green Party Sonoma County, 100 Thousand Poets for Change, and Move To Amend Sonoma County
