Please come to the free show -- and bring your friends and family. RSVP using the form on this page.
Conservationists and indigenous groups are joining forces to stop Trump's dangerous rollback of environmental and civil rights protections. Just six weeks into his presidency, Trump has launched campaigns to gut the Environmental Protection Agency, block protection of endangered species, dump coal mining waste in streams, build a culturally and environmentally disastrous wall along the Mexican border and increase air pollution.
He has approved the Dakota Access oil pipeline, which threatens the water and sacred lands of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, revived the Keystone XL oil pipeline across the lands of several Native American tribes, empowered the theft of Arizona's Oak Flat, which is sacred to the San Carlos Apaches, and has floated the idea of privatizing Indian reservations so they can be sold off to oil, gas and uranium companies.
The free Earth2Trump show will feature music by singer-songwriter Casey Neill and Diné and Cheyenne hip-hop artist Lyla June. It will also include speeches by Cheryl Angel, a Lakota elder fighting the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines, and Brytnee Laurette with the Center for Biological Diversity.
This is a powerful opportunity to join a growing movement of resistance to all forms of oppression and all attacks on our environment. Join us in standing together in opposing every Trump policy that hurts wildlife, undermines Native American sovereignty, poisons our air and water, destroys our climate, or promotes racism, misogyny or homophobia.
At each show, you can:
Join us for a fun and inspiring evening of music and activism -- and help send a powerful, unwavering Earth2Trump message that oppression and environmental destruction will not be tolerated.
