Wespac’s long and sadly neglected committee, Friends of Turtle Island, is being rekindled.

Join us if you are interested in our mission of finding ways to stand in solidarity with (and learn from) Indigenous peoples locally and worldwide.

(The lands have been twice listed on the Superfund site. This is the only site in America to be twice listed). Chief Vince Mann of the Ramapough Turtle Clan will be there to speak.
