Fundraiser

Help Robie Goins Fight A Pipeline

Brothers Robie and Dwayne Goins of Robeson County are members of the Lumbee Tribe and live in Prospect, NC, a majority Native American community. Dwayne lives adjacent to a site where Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC has announced plans to build a gas metering and regulation station and a 350 ft. microwave tower (to control the station remotely). Prospect, already burdened with two older pipelines and associated gas infrastructure, is now slated to become the 36 inch, 1400psi Atlantic Coast Pipeline's official southern terminus. Robie and Dwayne have filed suit in Robeson County challenging a conditional use permit issued to the company by the county a year ago.

Chicago Fundraiser For Marissa Alexander

By now, most of you know that Marissa Alexander's retrial is set to begin this fall, and that the legal costs stemming from her case are astronomical. Marissa, a black woman who fired a warning shot in defense of herself and her children, faces up to 60 years in prison. It is crucial that the racism fueling this prosecution be countered with the love and solidarity of those who believe in justice. On Saturday, September 13th, we will come together to express that love and solidarity by celebrating Marissa's birthday and raising money for her defense. The event begins at 7pm, and will include an art auction, live poetry, music, drinks, and an appearance by the Chicago Light Brigade. Local artist Sarah Adams will also be sketching portraits on request for donations.
