Circle of Protection: Bent Mountain
Please complete registrations for all individuals planning to attend.

Water protectors from three states will gather on Bent Mountain for a potluck supper, a SUN SiNG & Local Friends Concert, and overnight camping (optional). We will share stories, interfaith prayers, and strategy. We will sing, dance, grieve, learn and make art for the following day.

"Circle of Protection: Bent Mountain" is the first of two No MVP/No ACP events from an emergent coalition of Virginia, North Carolina, and West Virginia pipeline resisters during the September 20-27 Climate Strike Week. Circle of Protection: Bent Mountain will support the second event, "Climate Emergency: Tri-State Pipeline Strike", which will take place on the morning of Monday, September 23 in Roanoke, VA.

Ideally, folks will attend both events, but that is not required. Also optional is camping over at the "Circle of Protection: Bent Mountain" site on Sunday evening. Help us by deciding ahead if you will camp over.

A commitment to non-violence, completion of the registration below and signed liability waivers* are required for entry. Your registration information will not be shared with anyone without specific permission from you.
