“Climate Heroes on Trial: The Valve Turners”

Starts: Sunday, January 14th 2018 at 11:30 am
Ends: Sunday, January 14th 2018 at 12:30 pm

Who are the Valve Turners and why did they shut off the valves on 5 pipelines delivering dirty crude from Canadian tar sands to refineries in the US? Why did they risk arrest and imprisonment for their beliefs?

Two of the five Valve Turners will present thoughtful, articulate, and courageous stories of acting out of necessity to raise our awareness and protect the planet while we still have time.
