| Walk Led by Native American Elders in Prayer Conversation for:
* Clean Air, Water & Soil
* Safe Jobs, Roads, Railroads & Waterways
* A Vibrantly Healthy Future for All Children
* A Just Transition to Safe & Sustainable Energy
Idle No More SF Bay and citizens from front-line refinery communities invite you to attend one of a series of four walks, one each month from April through July. The second annual Connect the Dots: Refinery Corridor Healing Walks begins with a Walk from Pittsburg to Martinez (see below).
The Walks bring attention and awareness to the environmental and health impacts of the five refineries along the Northeast San Francisco Bay. They are led by Native American elders and others in prayer, with those walking behind in conversation. Prayers for the water are conducted by Native American women at the beginning and end of each walk.
