STAND WITH US — The sacred ceremonial heartland of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band near Gilroy, CA is threatened by a proposed 403-acre sand and gravel mining operation.

Santa Clara County has released an environmental analysis of the project and soon will decide whether to approve or deny permits for the mine. If built, this project would devastate pristine grasslands and woodlands, impair a critical wildlife movement corridor, and desecrate Amah Mutsun (Ohlone) sacred sites.

Join us in front of the Santa Clara County building on Sept. 10 to stand together for the land, for cultural survival, and to show the strength of our collective determination to protect Juristac!

We encourage you to plan to attend the Rally with a team of friends, carload of family members, or boatload of colleagues. Consider meeting up with your team beforehand, or starting a text message/Signal group to coordinate plans.

Please help us get the word out!
