Water is Life: A Fundraiser for Water Protectors Legal Collective

  • Zen Life & Meditation Center Chicago 38 West Lake Street Oak Park, IL, 60302 United States (map)

We invite you to Water is Life - an evening to benefit the Standing Rock Water Protector Legal Collective (WPLC). WPLC is the on-the-ground legal team for the ceremonial resistance camps at Standing Rock, North Dakota. They maintain a presence on-site and provide legal advocacy, jail and court support, criminal defense, and civil and human rights protection to the Native peoples and their allies gathered there.

WPLC (formerly known as Red Owl) operates in partnership with the National Lawyers Guild. They are dedicated to protecting the sovereign treaty rights of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and providing legal representation and coordination for Water Protectors engaged in resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Co-sponsors Zen Life & Meditation Center, Halau i Ka Pono, Great Plains Zen Center and Oak Park Progressive Women invite you for a family friendly evening of speakers, dance, a traditional meal and a silent auction. 

While the event is free, contributions are welcome. All proceeds will be sent to Water Protector Legal Collective via Halau i Ka Pono.
