Ashley Anderson and Peaceful Uprising plan a social awareness rally Feb. 25-27, called Countdown to Uprising Empowerment Summit, in anticipation of the trial of Tim DeChristopher on Feb. 28. DeChristopher disrupted a 2008 oil and gas leasing auction in Salt Lake City and was indicted in 2009 on charges of providing a false statement and violating the Federal Onshore Oil and Gas Leasing Reform Act.

"Any way that it turns out I think it's going to be a powerful trial," DeChristopher said on Saturday. "I went into it thinking of it as a sacrifice, and I found that it was the opposite, that it's been extremely empowering."

Additionally, Anderson is encouraging anyone interested in participating in the rally to stop by the group's warehouse to help make sashes and signs. The warehouse, on 1361 S. Main Street in Salt Lake City, will be open for volunteer work in the week leading up to the rally and trial.
