December 19: Still Standing with Standing Rock in North Dakota

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Dakota Access Pipeline Donation Fund

Red State: North Dakota
Focus: Environmental & Human Rights

Why?

Despite the recent victory to halt construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, it is not time to start ignoring the Native American Rights movement that Standing Rock has once again brought to the forefront. Barring a complete Christmas Miracle, an environment-hating demagogue will be confirmed by the Electoral College today. It would be totally naive to think that he wouldn’t literally bulldoze his agenda through in North Dakota.

I picked Standing Rock as my North Dakota cause not just because of the environment, but also to protect the Water Protectors. As winter encroaches, those who remain will need supplies. And as the new administration dawns, I greatly fear for carte blanche human rights abuses like we witnessed in November.

Finally, I hope that many Americans can find their inner-protestor in the coming year or two. We can learn a lot from the folks who’ve been sacrificing in North Dakota this year to defend their rights and those of future generations.
