Please join the Coalition to Save Jackson at a “30×30” Kick Off Rally on September 28th, 2022! The rally begins at 11 am, outside the California Natural Resources Agency’s 30×30 Kick Off Event:

Sacramento Rally for Pomo Land Back and Protection of Jackson Forest
Wed Sep 28th 11am-4pm 
Natural Resources Agency: 715 P St

The State of California has committed to protecting 30% of all land and water by 2030 — goals that are now commonly referred to as the 30×30 initiatives. These initiatives aim to protect the places that science confirms are critical to combat climate change.

The Save Jackson Coalition is supporting the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians as they negotiate co-management of the Jackson Demonstration State Forest (JDSF) in their Pomo homelands. Establishing co-management and ending commercial logging in Jackson, the largest state-owned forest, are necessary if California is to enact the goals of reconciliation with Tribal people and reach its 30×30 goal of preserving lands to slow climate change.

Supporting this campaign has statewide impacts because the Coyote Valley Band of Pomo Indians is negotiating with the State based on Governor Newsom’s little-publicized directive to state agencies to co-manage lands with the Tribes of California. What happens in Pomo Homelands can affect Tribal co-management in all of California. Please join with us to support evolved forest management!

Questions and RSVPs for the rally can be emailed to Showing Up for Racial Justice Mendo Coast chapter, a member of the Coalition to Save Jackson: 
You can register for the State’s 30×30 event for free here if you would like to go inside the event and make your presence known. Our rally will be outside the event.

We will amplify Tribal Elder Priscilla Hunter’s statement “No More Broken Promises” expressed because, after halting logging, road building, and pesticide operations for seven months during negotiations with the Tribe, CalFire and CNRA announced without notice to the Tribe that they are resuming logging in Jackson Forest.

STOP LOGGING Jackson Forest! EQUAL Co-Management Now!
Protect Pomo Sacred Sites!
