Carrizo Comecrudo Tribe of Texas

$10,000 to support Carrizo Comecrudo Tribe of Texas’ Bridges to the Ancestors youth-led run/walk, a 10-day journey across west Texas and down to Rio Grande Valley, including hosting town hall meetings at frontline community stops along the route, to further raise awareness about LNG’s impacts and build alliances. The Rio Grande Valley LNG and Texas LNG export terminals, if built, along with the Rio Bravo pipeline, would spew as much greenhouse emissions as approximately 40.4 million cars on the road per year, impact sacred Indigenous sites, pave over a “greenfield” of undeveloped wetlands, pollute nearby wildlife refuges, and divide a national wildlife corridor, transforming sites near the Port of Brownsville into industrial-scale export hubs complete with storage tanks, flare stacks, and explosion risks.
