|Sunday at 1 PM – 4 PM

All are invited to attend the Gainesville Quaker Meeting’s Forum on the Sabal Trail Pipeline, Sunday, February 5th, to learn about this imminent threat to the Florida water supply as it works its way south. The featured speaker will be Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson, an employee of the Sierra Club. Beverly Ward, SEYM’s Field Secretary for Earthcare, will also be there to speak and share information.
At SEYM Winter Interim Business Meeting, this minute on the pipeline was approved:
“The Sabal Trail Pipeline and Florida South Connection, which are being built by Florida Power and Light, Next Era, and Duke & Spectra Energy, endanger culturally significant land and also put several Florida waterways, human populations and wildlife in danger. We, Southeastern Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), meeting at WIBM, are called to support the voices and peaceful actions of those who are protesting this pipeline.”
