Mother’s Day Pie


Our allies in southwest Virginia who are fighting the Mountain Valley Pipeline urge everyone to join them for Mother’s Day Pie! On Sunday, May 12, 2019, at 3:33 pm (or whenever you like), mothers and those who love mothers will gather wherever they are to share stories, eat pie and proclaim their dedication to protecting and defending our sacred waters. If you would like to participate, please do! Your event can be as large or as small as you like. A simple live stream video with pie-eating and proclamation delivery may be enough, or you might wish to have a large community gathering. It’s entirely up to you and your community.

Film yourself reading a proclamation while you eat your pie – or do the proclamation with a group as call and response.

Depending where you live, there are two related events you may wish to attend, one in VA (Floyd County, at the Anahata retreat center) and one in WV (Summers County, at the Laferriere’s Blackberry Springs farm). We also (really) hope you will consider hosting one yourself!
