Resisting: One Family’s Story
The Clatterbuck Family, PA IPL Visionary Award Recipients

  • Mark Clatterbuck, Associate Professor of Religion at Montclair State University in New Jersey
  • Malinda Harnish Clatterbuck, Associate Pastor at Community Mennonite Church of Lancaster and Community Rights Coordinator for the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund
  • Ashton Clatterbuck, freshman at Bennington College in Bennington VT
  • Hannah Clatterbuck, Junior at the Stone Independent High School in Lancaster

Our Visionary Awardees, the Clatterbuck family, recount their reaction, and ultimately response, to a gas transmission charted to go through their community.  Founders of Lancaster Against Pipelines, the Clatterbucks will recount how standing up to the bullying of a large corporation empowered the community to bond together – to become stronger- and how the community they are a part of creating continues today. Malinda, Mark, Ashton and Hannah will invite us to consider what we are capable of, and what we are willing to do to stand up for what we believe in.  What are the spiritual underpinnings we hold that ground us in the work that we do, and continue to do? Read more about them in the New Yorker.

There are three workshops per location. Find everything you need to know about the conference here.
