FLAGSTAFF, AZ -- Arizona Snowbowl is opening their controversial ski area on November 28, 2014 with snow made from 100% treated sewage on the San Francisco Peaks. 
This protest is being held to address environmental issues, public health concerns, and ongoing religious freedoms violations of Indigenous People who hold the Peaks sacred. During the recent sale of Snowbowl, new threats of ski area expansion have been made to the integrity of sensitive mountain eco-system.
The mountain, water, and all life forms are precious. We will keeping standing for human rights and environmental justice until they STOP making snow with treated sewage effluent. Come stand together against Snowbowl’s dirty snow!

When: Friday, November 28, 2014 at 9:00 AM.
