Community Rights Lane County along with UO Ethnic Studies and Native American Studies is hosting a “Rights of Nature” presentation by Winona LaDuke in the EMU Ballroom, Saturday November 19th at 7pm. Winona will speak on Nature’s historic position as “property” and the international call to authorize Nature’s right to exist, persist and naturally evolve. There is a global movement dedicated to normalizing this notion of “rights of Nature”. As a Native elder once told me, “It is only by the grace of Nature, that the people exist.” (oh yeah, and we are Nature …!)
WHEN: Saturday November 19th, 7pm
WHERE: EMU Ballroom
