Parker introduced a number of nationally recognized speakers addressing issues including social justice, civil rights, and environmentalism. Shelly Covert, from the local Nisenan Tribe, spoke about the struggle of the Nisenan to survive after the tribe was offically terminated by the United States Government in 1964. She says events like the Women’s March empower her efforts.
