Sponsored by Bold Alliance, a national organization with roots in fighting the Keystone XL pipeline, this event offers respect for the energetic efforts in Appalachia to work together both regionally and within the national pipeline movement.

With support from the local grassroots organization Preserve Floyd and Standing Rock activist, William Adams, “Defend the Sacred” will be an opportunity to celebrate the work already accomplished and to amplify the voices of the many people who continue to fight. The event is free, but a donation of $5 per person is suggested to contribute towards the Bold Appalachia Landowner Alliance.
