Solidarity with Standing Rock

We are proud to stand with Sacred Stone Camp, an indigenous resistance movement against the Dakota Access Pipeline. This pipeline threatens to destroy the only water supply for the Standing Rock tribe -- and indigenous resistance against it has become a movement moment. Tribes from all over the country and people from all over the world have gathered in North Dakota to stand in solidarity in resistance against the pipeline.

NOC is sending a delegation up to Sacred Stone this weekend. You can help by donating supplies to the Sacred Stone Camp (supply list below).

You can bring supplies to a community potluck hosted by our ally partners, Dig-in Against DAPL Potluck and Pack-the-Truck, Thursday, September 29 from 5:30pm-7:30pm at Cedar Avenue Field, 2500 Cedar Ave S, Minneapolis. RSVP for the potluck and spread the word.

You can also bring items (suggested list below) on the morning of the trip, Friday September 30 by 7:30AM to the East Phillips Cultural Center, 2307 17th Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55404.

Sacred Stone Camp also has an Amazon Wish List.
