Earth Ministry is happy to co-sponsor a special evening of story, reflection and discussion about the mighty and mythic Columbia River.
Fifty years ago, the United States and Canada adopted a Treaty to jointly manage power production and flood management. While this treaty delivered important benefits to the Northwest, it also harmed the river’s health and communities on both sides of the border. Three panelists will share their unique perspectives and stories about how this 50-year old Treaty has impacted basin communities and offer their insights into what an updated, modernized Treaty must do to sustain and restore the river and the people that rely on it in the 21st Century.
While this event is free and open to the public, donations to cover our costs will be gratefully accepted. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
