Celebrate Nestlé Defeat & Meet the New ED

Celebrate your power with the Bark community.​


Dear Barkers,

What a breath of fresh air to have something to celebrate! Have you taken a moment to savor the victory of our concerted grassroots effort to stop one of the most powerful corporations in the world?

Join the Bark community on Tuesday, November 28th from 5-8pm for an evening of celebration, storytelling and community joyfulness! That night at Cider Riot we will toast to the many volunteers who succeeded in protecting our public water from Nestlé, and welcome Bark’s new Executive Director Rob Sadowsky.

What: Celebrate defeating Nestlé, welcome Rob and toast to our awesome community

When: #GivingTuesday, November 28th, 5-8pm

Where: Cider Riot, 807 NE Couch St. The cider bar is no-host and 10% of the night’s profit will go to Bark. The taco truck outside will be available for delicious Mexican food. Cider Riot and No Q'No! are great supporters of unions and community efforts so let’s support them, too!

Who: You, your family (all ages), your friends.

What, reprise: a laid-back evening with games, Bark trivia, stories from the Nestlé Campaign, Barker friends new and old, and the opportunity for making your year-end #GivingTuesday donation to Bark!

We’d love to see you! It’s a grim time for many, so come bask in some good ‘ol community power. Since we got the Nestlé news, I've heard many people's stories of the grand nine-year effort – writing a comment, having a conversation with a friend, showing up at a protest, going on a hike to see Oxbow Spring, or donating to support the cause – it all added up and we WON.

It’s important to take time to share stories, look into each other’s eyes and realize that we truly hold the power of barkers–the ones who cry out time and again until things are right.

With gratitude,

p.s. Since Tuesday, November 28th is #GivingTuesday we have a goal of raising $5,000 that day! Please take a moment to think about what Bark has meant to you this year and how you can help us enter 2018 with strength! If you can’t make it on the 28th or want to kick-start our year-end fundraising, you can donate online here and we’ll count it toward our #GivingTuesday goal. Thank you for being a Barker!

p.p.s. We just heard that we got hundreds of acres of forest dropped from two timber sales! Find out more at our Cider Riot event!
