Media Advisory: Lakota Spiritual Leader to Lead Interfaith Service Protesting Keystone XL
Tomorrow afternoon, Reverend Lennox Yearwood of the Hip-Hop Caucus will join Lakota spiritual leader Chief Arvol Looking Horse and other faith leaders for an interfaith service in front of the White House to protest the proposed Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. The faith leaders will urge President Obama to reject the permit for the pipeline immediately, citing concern over its impact on the climate and natural environment.The Keystone XL pipeline would put precious land and water along its route at risk, and threaten the health and livelihoods of tribal communities who depend on the land. It would also be a disaster for the climate and threaten our ability to leave a habitable planet for future generations.”We are asking people to gather and pray with us in front of the White House, at this crucial time,” said Keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe, Arvol Looking Horse. “We come from ceremonial places and sacred sites to Washington DC sending a message that we are supposed to be the voices for those that cannot speak, the land and animals, our future generations. We need prayer and energy as we continue to stand up for Mother Earth and reject this Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.”

WHO: Lakota spiritual leader Arvol Looking Horse, Reverend Lennox Yearwood, along with other faith leaders
