First Our Power Camp

Black Mesa Water Coalition (BMWC) hosted the first national CJA gathering on Navajo Nation lands  – bringing together 100 CJA members to stand in solidarity with communities on the frontlines of resistance against King Coal – from Mesa to Mountaintop, and from Holler to Hood. Leading with a Just Transition vision from Indigenous and allied frontline communities fighting coal mining and power generation, the gathering highlighted and supported the work of BMWC – Navajo, and Hopi peoples seeking to protect their sacred waters and lands by rebuilding local economic pathways, from strengthening the traditional Navajo wool economy to building community-controlled solar projects. This four-day gathering of skillbuilding, strategizing, storytelling, and direct action marked the public launch of the Our Power Campaign.
