After years of fighting new oil and gas pipelines in rural areas, activists have scored major victories that cloud the future or eliminate several big projects. The Rural Assembly partnered with Southerly to learn more about this work by talking to the activists and leaders on the ground. In this video conversation, Lyndsey Gilpin, Founder and Editor of Southerly Magazine, talks with three people who helped lead anti-pipeline campaigns about their work and what lies ahead.
As we celebrate the contributions of rural and native women across the country, we want to hear from you about your family and cultural traditions. We all know that traditions establish the foundation for our values, they are a way to pass on our history, and help us bond with each other in our communities.
So we ask;
What traditions are you practicing and helping to perpetuate?
Why is it important you?
How is your sense of identity and belonging tied to those traditions?
