350 Maine’s three Healing Walk participants will be giving a presentation on their experience of the Alberta tar sands at the Midcoast Friends Meetinghouse (77 Belvedere Rd., Damariscotta) on Sunday, November 23, at 12:30 p.m.

“In Maine, folks don’t look at things through the NIMBY lens very often. Learning about the environmental injustices happening up in Alberta Canada to First Nations people and their way of life is enough for them to get involved,” said Sarah Lachance, a walker and co-coordinator of 350 Maine’s Tar Sands Team.

Lee Chisholm, Freeport; Hilary Clark, York, and Sarah Lachance, Cape Porpoise, will discuss their impressions of tar sands mining’s impacts on people, especially First nations people, place, and planet.

This event is sponsored by the Midcoast Outreach and Peace Center. FMI call 207-563-3757.
