Connecting the Dots: Refinery Healing Walk #1 – Pittsburgh

April 18 @ 8:00 am - Event Details

The second annual Connect the Dots: Refinery Corridor Healing Walks is a series of four walks, one each month from April through July. The walks proceed along the Northeast San Francisco Bay refinery corridor.

The walks are led by Native American elders and others in prayer, with those walking behind in conversation. Prayers for the water are conducted by Native American women at the beginning and end of each walk. Walkers stop at each refinery and toxic sites along the way for teach-ins and prayer circles. During the final mile of each walk, walkers are encouraged to envision the “future they want” beyond fossil fuels. At the end of each walk, walkers are invited to draw or write their visions on squares of muslin. These small art pieces will be sewn into a quilt. The quilts from the 2014 walks will be on display at the beginning and end of each walk.
