No drilling, no pipelines, no problem! The People's Potluck will be focused on the Stop the Drilling in Southfield resistance and the permits to use an aging pipeline underneath the St Clair Shores River to transport crude oil. Both are too big of a risk to take! WE are coming together to protect our water and our communities! Pack your car, invite your community, and bring your family. All are welcome! WE are very excited to announce Grace Alexander and Diane Weckerle will be leading an in depth conversation about the Southfield, Michigan residents and activists building a movement to STOP the drilling for the storage of oil or natural gas in their community. Mariah Urueta is coming to talk about the aging pipeline running through the St Clair Shores river and how WE can stop them from flowing crude oil through it! The purpose of The People's Potluck is to have a place where families and communities can gather together and communicate, create community bonds, and share a dish. All are welcome. Bring a dish to pass and your family. Invite your community and pack your car! There will be a space for the kids to hang out, eat, do art, and chill. There will be someone there with the children but it will be every parents responsibility to make sure their kids stay there, go to the bathroom, and have everything they need to be comfortable.
