April Interest Group Explores Michigan’s First Peoples Campaigns

Michigan’s First People’s Social and Environmental Justice Campaigns

Saturday, April 9 2:00-3:30 PM

The April PJ&E program will feature talks by two leaders in Michigan’s First Peoples campaigns.

A spokesperson from the Anishinaabek Caucus will discuss their environmental campaigns, including opposition to the Enbridge Line 5 across the Mackinac Strait, other legislative campaigns for clean water, and the campaign to protect native species of plants (manoomin or wild rice).

Stacey Ettawageshik of Uniting Three Fires Against Violence will discuss the campaign to stop sexual assault against women in Indian Country, including by workmen in natural gas pipeline camps.

Small group discussions will follow, and there may be time for a brief review of Quaker resources for supporting our Indigenous neighbors’ justice campaigns.  There will be specific recommendations for action.
