#SaveOakFlat: Apache Stronghold Caravan to D.C.

This Sunday marks the kick-off of the Caravan to D.C. led by Apache Stronghold.  These warriors for justice are driving from Tucson to D.C. to bring light to the Save Oak Flat movement and to protest against the greedy land grab.  Below is the tentative schedule if you would like to be a fellow traveler, want to meet up with them along the way or if you just want to pray for safe travels.
