The Bay Area Rights of Nature Alliance (BARoNA) is holding a Rights of Nature Tribunal in Antioch, CA on April 30th. Visit the event's Facebook page to learn more, RSVP and receive updates and facts surrounding the event.

The Tribunal will address nature’s, community, and human rights violations specific to reduced flows in the Delta. It will particularly address the harm that the Governor’s proposed Delta Tunnels plan would do to those limited flows, as well as to the fish and Delta communities that depend on a healthy Bay-Delta Estuary.

Tribunal witnesses and experts will also offer solutions to water flow and supply challenges that protect, not injure, nature’s rights and human rights. Tribunal judges include: renowned eco-philosopher Joanna Macy, governmental liaison for the Winnemem Wintu tribe Gary Mulcahy, Movement Rights director Shannon Biggs, and Delta water expert Tim Stroshane.

This event is free and open to the public, but will require an RSVP. Please mark your calendars and join us in growing the movement for nature's rights.

Stay tuned for more information as the event grows closer.
