Join the Rachel Corrie Foundation for the 2016 Annual Human Rights Day Celebration on Saturday, December 10, 2016 from 6 to 9pm.

Gather together for an evening with friends and enjoy delicious food prepared by local Skokomish chefs Twana Catering, wine and locally-brewed beer donated by Three Magnets Brewing Co., a musical performance by Benjamin SittingBull, a Plains Indian singer, flutist and drummer, and a discussion on environmental and political activism.

The featured discussion will highlight the first-hand experiences of people working on the front lines of environmental and political activism in the US and Palestine. Our guest speakers this year, MorningStar Means and Earth-Feather Sovereign, will present "Standing Rock, Human Rights and Women" in a keynote talk. We hope to generate discussion of key questions including: How does settler colonialism in North America compare to settler colonialism in Palestine? How are struggles of indigenous people collaborating and what can we do to support? This conversation will assist in developing our understanding of how powerful principled allyship and what 'showing up' to support struggles should look like.


RCF is committed to practicing engaged solidarity, and is looking forward to sharing what we have in store for 2017.

Please note:

-Ticket sales and online donations will go directly cover the cost of the event and general RCF expenses.

-Additional donations made at the event will benefit programming or recipients selected by the donor. This year, our Giving Tree will feature RCF programs, as well as the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe as our Water Protectors continue their fight to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.
