Indigenous Flood - United Nations : NYC - Come to New York!

The Flood never came to Standing Rock, so let's bring the Flood to the United Nations. 

From April 24th to May 5th the United Nations in New York City is holding the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, also known as PFII. Typically, these forums lack Native American representation, and often have Non-Natives speaking on behalf of Natives and their issues. This ends now. 

For two weeks, we need to show New York, The UN, and the world that Indigenous People are here, and can speak for themselves. 

The world will not forget what happened at Standing Rock. The world will no longer ignore the conditions on reservations, and the issues effecting indigenous people around the globe. 3/4 of the world's population are indigenous, and it's time they stop forgetting that. 

There are multiple levels of events within this forum, some more exclusive than others. We want to come out in full force at every level. From top to bottom. From panels at the UN headquarters to flash mob round dances in Time Square, we are going to Flood New York City. 

Whether you are registered for the forum or not, we are asking for all indigenous people and allies to come to New York City and show your support. As the strongest of warriors take the United Nations to speak, they will have the support of their brothers and sisters outside, praying, singing, marching and standing in solidarity. 

Thousands came to Standing Rock. Thousands came to DC. And we can do the same in New York City. 

We are planning a plethora of events, from demonstrations, to speaking engagements, to gatherings and dances and celebrations. For two weeks, let's make New York City our new home. 

More details to come as this develops and grows. 

If you would like to register your own group for the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (PFII) in New York City. http://bit.ly/PFIIRegistration

March for Science - Rocket City on April 22!

March for Science - Rocket City on April 22!

The March for Science: Rocket City is a local chapter of the National March for Science, focused on celebrating the unique STEM-oriented culture we have here in our area, encouraging our elected representatives to enact evidence-based policy in line with that culture, and supporting local organizations which promote science and tirelessly work to make science accessible to people of all ages.

In recognition of that STEM heritage, we'll be marching from the our great local research institution of UAH to Huntsville's own Space and Rocket Center. 

This is a truly non-partisan, family friendly march that isn't focused on any singular science related issue, this is about reminding our representatives how important well funded, empirical, peer reviewed science of all kinds is to our economic success.

More info, as well as tips for the march at http://rocketcitysciencemarch.org/
