Join us in Ponca City, Oklahoma this May 16-18, 2019.
This Indigenous-led organizing summit will be held in the epicenter of Oklahoma’s oil and gas activity in Ponca City, Oklahoma. Coming at the request of Casey Camp Horinek, Ponca Nation of Oklahoma elder, tribal councilwoman and international movement leader, this conference will bring much needed energy and attention to a key battleground state in the fight against the fossil fuel industry. With an emphasis on innovative strategies led by frontline indigenous, POC and grassroots communities, the conference builds on the People Vs Oil and Gas Summit held in Pittsburgh in 2017 with improved structures for environmental justice. We hope to bring together 200+ participants 75% of whom are frontline, POC, and grassroots participants. Topics will span the gamut from technical trainings on the impacts of industry, to a track on Rights of Nature, Indigenous rights and allyship, and other skills based trainings.
The final agenda will be released April 15. There will be four tracks: Indigenous, Rights of Nature, Skills, and Technical Training.
The Ponca Nation of Oklahoma, Movement Rights, Earthworks, Indigenous Environmental Network, Stand.earth, Stop The Frack Attack, Oil Change International, The Center for Biological Diversity, 350.org, Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth, Beyond Extreme Energy, Native Organizers Alliance, and many more.
