Campers are needed this weekend, November 20, 21, 22, 23. November 20 and 21st are most needed!
Please consider spending a few days at Oak Flat to help ensure a constant presence of people who care for the land. If you go, please come prepared to support yourself fully, including staying warm during chilly nights.
After this weekend, we will continue the call for people to camp out at Oak Flat and offer support to those who have been there since February. In an effort to facilitate coordination of people heading to Oak Flat, we are reviving the Oak Flat Camping Calendar, publicly available here:
The RideShare site is also available here: Look up code Oak_Flat. Please spread the word about the calendar and RideShare site to help get people up to Oak Flat!
We also have a variety of volunteer needs that were discussed at the Tucson Supports Oak Flat meeting last night. Please let us know if you can help!
  • Tabling help in Tucson December 11, 12, 13 at the 4th Avenue Street Fair. If you can volunteer, please contact Cyndi at [email protected]
  • Research help – we need volunteers to find out where Senator John McCain, Senator Jeff Flake, Representative Ann Kirkpatrick, or Representative Paul Gosar will be making public appearances in Arizona, especially Tucson. You will need to follow their Facebook page and websites and report back to us. The goal is to identify opportunities for public outreach, protests, or demonstrations whenever these politicians are in and around Tucson. You can volunteer to track and report on one or more of them.
  • Commit to showing up! We want to develop a “rapid response team” which is a group of people who are committed to showing up for protests, demonstrations, or outreach events on short notice. Please let us know if you are willing to be part of this team and we will contact you whenever we hear about an opportunity to show that Tucson Supports Oak Flat by showing up in person for a brief demonstration or other event.
  • Write a Letter to the Editor of the Arizona Daily Star or the Arizona Republic or any other Arizona newspaper. This is especially important right after a paper publishes any article on Oak Flat, the Save Oak Flat Act (HR 2811 or S 2242), or mining issues.
  • Volunteer to help with fundraising for Oak Flat.
Please plan to attend our next organizing meeting on Wednesday, December 16, 6:30pm, in Tucson – exact location is still TBD.

Thank you for all you do to support Oak Flat!
