Red Line Salish Sea (RLSS) is an Indigenous led organization focused on the protection of water, land, and air in the Salish Sea region. RLSS has stood strong against the Dakota Access Pipeline and for tribal treaty rights and environmental justice. RLSS has mobilized to counter the organized anti-Indian movement. Read below how you can stand in solidarity with Red Line Salish Sea.

From Red Line Salish Sea:

Back in early 2017 Michael and Michelle Vendiola took a stance against the Dakota Access Pipeline project. You may have as well. As a result of their commitment the court found that they should fulfill 40 hours of community service. We need a solid group of 20 people who are willing to commit to 4 hours of roadside cleanup along with them. This would be considered a shared community service. We are proposing this to County Prosecutor this week so that we can knock this community service out in one day.

Here is the plan for that day: We are collaborating with ReSources to provide roadside clean up supplies. We are working to confirm a collaboration with the Lummi Nation to clean up the roadside of the beautiful Lummi Shore Drive that faces across the bay towards Bellingham. Following the 4 hour service project RLSS will host an organizing mtg. and thank-you BBQ/meal hopefully near the Lummi Stommish grounds. Specific details will be emailed out.

At the end of this registration you will have a selection of weekend dates for Sept. & Oct. Please select ALL dates you are available and this will help us accommodate when the most volunteers are available. Thank you for the support!
