Film screenings in Vancouver suburbs raise $1000
A film screening of two powerful pipeline films held by our allies at Tri-Cities Leadnow and Raincoast raised over $1000. Two beautiful and powerful films were shown:
- Reflections: Art for an Oil Free Coast
It was a great night of film screenings and art for The Week to End Enbridge and raised 560$, which means after matching by our anonymous donor they raised over $1000! A good sized crowd came to the screening and also to view the beautiful art being displayed and sold at the event.
“After the approval of Northern Gateway in June 2014, community groups in Smithers and Terrace hosted small scale fundraisers to support First Nations legal challenges aimed at stopping it. These communities knew firsthand what was at stake, and the power of standing with First Nations. They approached RAVEN Trust and Sierra Club BC to create a campaign and challenged the rest of us to step up. Pull Together is a tangible way individuals, communities and businesses can provide financial support to First Nations and moral support to everyone on the front lines against Enbridge.”
