The courageous actions of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the indigenous communities, climate activists, local farmers and community members that continue to oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline project in North Dakota have inspired people all over the country and the world to stand in solidarity and support. If the pipeline project is allowed to continue, it will carry dangerous fracked oil over several states and under the Missouri River - this means destruction of sacred land and water for local Native communities and a climate disaster for people and the planet. 
 
 
We stand in solidarity with those on the frontlines of nonviolent resistance against the Dakota Access Pipeline, and encourage you to get active in any way you can to support the fight.
Yesterday was a #NoDAPL National Day of Action, but if you couldn’t attend an event in your area, you can still answer the Call to Support the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe by taking the time to contact your congressional representative, U.S. senator, the White House and the Army Corps of Engineers demanding they oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Additionally, there is still time to take part in the #NoDAPL Solidarity Global Weeks of Action called for by the Camp of Sacred Stones and the Red Warrior Camp and happening through September 17.
 
 
Current targets for solidarity actions include the companies working to build the Dakota Access Pipeline, the financial institutions responsible for the money behind the project and the contractor constructing the pipeline.

No matter how you choose to stand with Standing Rock, we thank you for doing your part to help keep this important fight for climate democracy alive and support this indigenous led movement for people, planet and peace over profit.
