Pull Together on Kinder Morgan will take place Tuesday, August 22, 2017, at Finnriver Farm & Cidery,
124 Center Road in Chimacum from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. This fundraiser is being launched to support the First
Nations' legal struggle against the proposed Kinder Morgan Pipeline, and will educate attendees about the
perils this pipeline poses for the Salish Sea.
Eric de Place, Policy Director of the Sightline Institute and leading authority on fossil fuel transport issues
in the Pacific Northwest, will be the keynote speaker. Sightline Institute is an independent, nonprofit
research and communications center that equips the Northwest’s citizens and decision-makers with the
policy research and practical tools for long-term solutions to our region’s most significant challenges. Mr.
de Place will cover a range of issues connected to fossil fuel transport, including carbon emissions, local
pollution, transportation system impacts, rail policy and economics.
The program, which promises to be both thoughtful and fun, will also feature a Gangnam Style
performance by the North Olympic Orca Pod (NOOP), PT Songlines Choir, and Jamestown S’Klallam
storyteller Hawk Grinnell.
The Sierra Club, the Sightline Institute, Finnriver Farm & Cidery, along with the Native Connections
Action Group and Green Sanctuary Environmental Action Committee of Quimper Unitarian Universalist
Fellowship are co-sponsoring the event. Sierra Club BC and the Force of Nature Alliance are also involved.
