Circles of Voices: Benefit Concert featuring Luke Wallace
June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Join us for a very special evening of songs and stories – a benefit concert for RAVEN (Respecting Aboriginal Values and Environmental Needs).
Luke Wallace headlines a show that will bring together storytellers, spoken word and a chorus of voices to sing songs of praise and protest for our world. This event is a fundraiser for RAVEN’s Breathing Lands campaign, supporting 10 Indigenous Nations who are in court to protect Canada’s boreal peatlands: lands and waters that sequester more carbon than the Amazon rainforest.
This benefit concert is supported by UCV’s Social Justice and Environment teams. Tickets: https://fundraise.raventrust.com/breathing
The Breathing Lands are a vast peatland in northern Ontario whose wetland ecosystems, stewarded since time immemorial by Anishinaabe caretakers, act as the lungs of planet Earth. These rich lands and waters are at risk, as the Ford government pushes to exploit minerals in what they call ‘The Ring of Fire’.
