Subject: FYI: How We Can Stand With Standing Rock

Despite brutal state violence so familiar to NYC communities of color, Water Protectors at Standing Rock are continuing to engage in nonviolent mass resistance against construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) on Sioux treaty land.

As the harsh northern winter sets in (with temperatures plummeting into the teens this week), here are some ways that each of us at Legal Aid can help:

  • Sign the Urgent Call on the AFL-CIO: Reverse Support for the Dakota Access Pipeline (14k+ signers and rising).
  • Join, or donate to, the NYC labor/community delegation going next week to build a winterized camp and deliver a vehicle to Standing Rock for sustained solidarity.
  • Donate and/or offer legal assistance to the Water Protector Legal Collective/NLG, a nonprofit organization coordinating criminal and civil litigation for water protectors in Standing Rock, in partnership with the National Lawyers Guild.
