Asbury Park, NJ 07712

this series is presented by the racial justice project at trinity episcopal church, asbury park. NEW SPEAKER! We are honored to announce that Ramapough Lenape Nation elder, Chief Dwaine Perry, will be speaking! The Ramapough Lenape Nation is engaged in a local NJ battle, centered at Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp, to prevent an oil pipeline under their ancestral lands. They also face many present-day ramifications as outlined in this recent New York Times article, The Ramapoughs vs. the World. Here's an excerpt: "This is hardly the stuff of colonial history. In 2007, a year after the fatal shooting of a Ramapough man by a ranger with New Jersey State Park Police, the state issued a report detailing the "blatant discrimination" faced by natives as well as the "benign neglect by the state to significant and direct threats to their physical and economic well-being." ALL FUNDS RAISED GO TO SPLIT ROCK SWEETWATER PRAYER CAMP!!!
