Women of the Land Speak: Dispatches from the Frontlines of the Tar Sands to Renewables
5th & K | Cullen Room | February 17,2013 | 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Indigenous communities and women of the land are taking the lead to stop the largest industrial project on Earth. From Northern Alberta, which is ground zero with over 20 corporations operating in the tar sands sacrifice zone, to Texas where the XL Keystone pipeline is under construction, the tar sands and related infrastructure are threatening communities across North America. The cultural heritage, land, ecosystems and health of land-based communities are being sacrificed for oil money in what has been termed a “slow industrial genocide.”

Join us for an extraordinary evening with women leaders speaking out against the tar sands and its violation of their lands and communities, and hear about implemental, clean-energy solutions, including:

  • Melina Laboucan-Massimo Lubicon Cree, Northern Alberta
  • Eleanor Fairchild 78-year-old eastern Texas farmer
  • Crystal Lameman Sierra Club & IEN Alberta Tar Sands Campaigner
  • Julia Trigg Crawford Northeast Texas farmer
  • Angelina M. Galiteva Founder, Renewables 100 Policy Institute
  • Osprey Orielle Lake Founder/President, Women's Earth and Climate Caucus
