Protecting Sacred Landscapes: From Juristac to Medicine Lake

Join us for an inspiring online event to learn about Indigenous-led movements in California to protect sacred places and critical wildlife habitat from industrial developmentā€”and how you can get involved.

In Santa Clara County southwest of Gilroy, the most sacred site of the Amah Mutsun Tribal Band is currently threatened by a proposed 317-acre sand and gravel mining operation. Juristac, otherwise known as Sargent Ranch, is the cultural and spiritual center of Amah Mutsun territory and also serves as an essential migration corridor for mountain lions, badgers, and other wildlife.
