Interfaith Vigil at the Mississippi Headwaters: The Movement to Stop Line 3
September 22 @ 8:00 am - September 23 @ 5:00 pm
On July 22nd MNIPL Executive Director convened Alexander Davis, Chair of the Rabbinical Association; Curtiss DeYoung, CEO of Minnesota Council of Churches; Emily Goldthwaite-Fries of Mayflower Church, and Jim Bear Jacobs of Healing Minnesota Stories for a follow up meeting with the Governor’s office on our faith leader letter that we delivered in June. We asked Governor Dayton to take leadership in appealing the PUC decision. We showed up to powerfully articulate the long view and the moral message. In September we’ll take our prayers to the northland as we convene an interfaith vigil at the threatened headwaters of the Mississippi River. Mark your calendars for this important weekend of conversation, wild rice gathering and prayer.

We’ll add you to our rapid response list to keep you up to date about actions and conversations and invite you to help with the organizing of a faith community vigil at the Headwaters of the Mississippi River which is planned for September 22-23rd.
