Indigenous Grandmothers vs. AltaGas, Washington Gas’ Parent Company

Thu, 20 Jun 2024 22:30:00 GMT

Mark your calendars: Mi’kmaq grandmothers to visit DC on Thursday, June 20 from Nova Scotia. Come hear their stories of protecting sacred indigenous land from the false claims and reckless pipeline plans of Washington Gas’s parent company, AltaGas, in Canada.

Cheryl and April Maloney, who led the Mi’kmaq campaign, will tell their story with words, photos, and video. They’ll describe their “spiritual” campaign that began with the building of a sacred fire near the gas company’s proposed pipeline operation, invoking the spirit and guidance of their ancestors. For nearly ten years, these heroic leaders fought – and won – a bruising pipeline fight against AltaGas.

Along the way, they encountered the kind of false claims, greed, and fossil fuel expansion efforts that Washington Gas now demonstrates almost daily across DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia.

WHAT: Indigenous Grandmothers vs. AltaGas, Washington Gas’ Parent Company — A Cautionary Tale for Washington, DC!

WHERE: Foundry United Methodist Church, 1500 16th St NW, Washington, DC 20036

WHEN: Thursday, June 20, 6:30 PM-8:00 PM. Doors open at 6:00 PM.

WHAT ELSE: This event is FREE and drinks will be provided.
