I’m emailing y’all as leaders of 350 groups across WA state. 350 Seattle is hosting the Promise to Protect tour and we wanted to make sure y’all heard about it. If people from your groups want to come and attend, we may be able to help with housing and travel reimbursement.  Just email me directly about that. Breakfast and lunch are included and we also are offering childcare.
We do have a LOT more space on Sunday — so if you have any flexibility in the day you can attend, please choose Sunday.
The invitation and RSVP links are below — the location is in Seattle and is revealed after registration.

Join the Promise to Protect Training in Seattle the weekend of April 27/28

This training is offered twice — Saturday and Sunday. Sign up for one day!

RSVP for Saturday 4/27

RSVP for Sunday 4/28

Note: This training is meant to be fun, but also not to be taken lightly. There are a limited number of spots available, therefore you should only register if you are 100% committed to attending. Because there are limited spots, only confirmed participants will receive the location information (in Seattle) for the training in the days leading up to the event.

This training will educate, empower, and elevate the voices and skills of community members to take back their land and push out extractive oil and gas companies. After the training, community members will be equipped with the knowledge and support necessary to organize their own actions to stop the fossil fuel industry and be prepared to take action on the route of Keystone XL if invited by Indigenous leaders.

This tour is historic. Never before have native and non native allies come together to build power in this way. This is an exciting opportunity for those who are committed to stopping the Keystone XL pipeline and ending the development of fossil fuels in their communities. The Promise to Protect is a commitment to resist fossil fuels where you live and prepare to take creative action along the Keystone XL pipeline route when called upon by Indigenous leaders. With millions of dollars being poured into fossil fuel projects each year and TransCanada doing all it can to build Keystone XL, we must be ready to mobilize and fight back to protect the land, air, and water. Construction keeps getting delayed, but we know that fossil fuel companies like TransCanada will stop at nothing to build their dirty projects.
