Stop by for easy access to resources for showing solidarity with Standing Rock!

Earlier this month water protectors of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe won a great victory when the Army Corps of Engineers called for a halt on the construction for the Dakota Access Pipeline. While in some ways this was wonderful news leaving many feeling accomplished and inspired, it is important to remember that the fight is far from over.

People will continue to stay there in camp until they feel that the water and land is safe ...and they still need our support. <3
