Join us on Thursday, August 29, 2019 from 12:00 – 3:00 pm at the Percy Griffin Center (15577 Hwy 15, Braithwaite, LA 70040). Food and childcare will be provided. Click here to RSVP and join us!

Increased intensity of storms, hotter temperatures, flooding, drought and sea level rise are indeed connected to industrial pollution and extractive industries. We must confront these intersecting issues and build a vision for something better together. #K14 Connecting the Dots on Environmental & Climate Justice will offer information and skills sessions on the impact of extractive infrastructure in the Gulf. Join us on Saturday, August 31st from 1:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the Buras Community Center (36342 Hwy 11, Buras, LA 70041). Food and childcare will be provided. Click here to RSVP and join us!
