Evergreen State College
Purce Lecture Hall, Room 7,
will speak about how the proposed fossil fuel facility in Tacoma would threaten public health and safety, climate stability, and the Puyallup Tribe’s treaty rights. Facebook page
Two active participants in the indigenous-led movement against a proposed fossil fuel facility in Tacoma, Dakota Case and Claudia Riedener, will be speaking about how the facility would threaten public health and safety, climate stability, and the Puyallup Tribe’s treaty rights. The speakers will also discuss some lessons about political action from their movement and how people in Olympia can support their movement. There will be time for questions from the audience. This event is free and open to the public, and all are welcome.
Dakota Case is a father, a fisherman, and a member of the Water Warrior movement within the Puyallup Tribe of Washington State.
Claudia Riedener is with Redefine Tacoma, whose mission is to move the greater Tacoma region from fossil fuels to 100% renewable, zero-carbon energy sources.
