Many students have approached the Dogwood Club with questions about the Kinder Morgan Pipeline. In response, we are excited to be offering an interactive information night on the Kinder Morgan Pipeline! This will be a community gathering to talk about the harmful affects of the pipeline project if approved and how it can affect our communities, environment and economy. We plan to facilitate a space where we can talk about more sustainable alternatives and to understand this pipeline’s potential affects from a diverse perspective. This event will be a great opportunity to see how community members are making a stand against this project and finding ways to get involved in collective action!
The information night will include a welcoming ceremony, presentations from a diverse and interdisciplinary panel by community experts, a free dinner, and break-out group discussions focused on “What we can do”. There will be various community organization booths set-up for attendees to gather information before and after the presentations and discussions. The money collected from raffle prizes will be used to raise money for Pull Together, Pull Together is a tangible way individuals, communities and businesses can provide financial support to First Nations legal cases and moral support to everyone on the front lines against this project.https://pull-together.ca/ but there is no need to wait for the event to donate!
