In conversation with Peter B. Collins, syndicated talk radio host

Who are the Valve Turners and why did they shut off the valves on 5 pipelines delivering dirty crude from Canadian tar sands to refineries in the US? Why did they risk arrest and imprisonment for their beliefs?
Two of the five Valve Turners will present thoughtful, articulate, and courageous stories of acting out of necessity to raise our awareness and protect the planet while we still have time.
Help support the group’s legal expenses as they prepare to argue their ground-breaking Climate Necessity Defense.

Refreshments will be served.

The event is free. Donations will be collected to help support the group's legal defense fund.
