Hard Lessons from Standing Rock: Slide Show & Conversation

  • Lundring Events Center Thousand Oaks, California 91360 (map)

How can resistance movements nationwide learn from the successes and failures of the Standing Rock protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota? Join Indivisible: Conejo and SWAN for a powerful presentation by Atta Stevenson, principal advisor for Frontline Wellness United and former president of the California Inter-Tribal Council. She'll present a brief history of the Standing Rock movement and speak about how to build sustainable, nonviolent resistance movements -- and how to ensure that populations under threat in such situations receive sufficient medical and wellness support.
