Day of Remembrance-10 Years After The Oil Spill

RSVP15 people are attending


Saturday, July 25, 2020



UPDATE: This will now be an online event. You can watch the livestream on the Kalamazoo Remembers Facebook Page.

This is a community event hosted by Kalamazoo Remembers to honor our river and kick-off a call to action as we continue to work with key organizations across the state.

It has been 10 years after Enbridge of Canada's Pipeline 6B ruptured, spilling more than 1 million gallons of heavy oil into the Kalamazoo River. Remember, Enbridge brought us the 67-year old Line 5 which must be shut down forever to prevent what happened in Kalamazoo from devastating the Straits and Great Lakes. The tunnel must never be built.

Watch the livestream where you will learn more about the Action Campaign and how everybody can help. Panelist speakers include Jeff Insko, founder of the Line 6B Citizens' Blog*, local Line 6B activist Chris Wahmhoff and Cecilia Strong.*
There will be A Native American Healing Water Walk that will not be recorded.

Performances by Kalamazoo's Rootead* and Samantha Cooper* will be broadcast on our livestream.

Please RSVP below and at the Event's Facebook event page.
