*17th Protecting Mother Earth Conference
June 28 – July 1st, 2018
Frank’s Landing, Nisqually Territories
11117 Conine Ave SE, Olympia, WA 98513
This year’s conference will be hosted by the LSqualli-Absch, the Nisqually People (People of the River, People of the Grass) and co-sponsored by the Indigenous Environmental Network and Indigenous Climate Action.
This conference is Indigenous-initiated, designed and led for the purpose of uplifting the critical voices of those on the frontline battles against environmental injustice and climate change. As such, we see the absolute need to have key ally representatives join us as observers and listeners during this event.
The 4-day event will include plenaries and break-out sessions addressing the following key themes: Water, Oceans and Fisheries, Climate Justice, Extreme Energy and Renewable Energy, Mining, Food Sovereignty, Environmental Health, Just Transition, and Rights of Mother Earth.
This is an outdoor event, with the expectation that guests (if able) camp on site. Showers, bathrooms, daycare and meals will be provided. We sincerely hope you can join us for our event! For more info email: PME2018@ienearth.org or call: (218) 751-4967
