One of the most important struggles of our time is unfolding before our eyes and we refuse to sit on the sidelines. Listen to find out how you can support those on the front lines at Standing Rock with more than just a click. Sign our petition here and listen below.

On the evening of Thursday, December 1, we hosted the following presenters for a national discussion on Solidarity with Standing Rock, with over 350 activists from around the country RSVP’ed:
  • Judith Leblanc, Director of the Native Organizers Alliance & Former UFPJ National Co-Chair
  • Emily Ruff, Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council & Director of the Florida School of Holistic Living
  • Matt De Vlieger, United for Peace and Justice Communications and Organizing Coordinator & Peace Pledge Campaigner
  • Matt Howard, Co-Director of Iraq Veterans Against the War
    …And others!

The call opens with their accounts from the Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock, reports on the current day-to-day since the snow, updates on the orders of eviction, the arrival of 2,000 veterans to protect the camp, and a rundown of what kind of support is currently needed on-the-ground and around the country. Finally, engaged in an open discussion about targeted local actions that you can take as part of a broader national strategy.

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for organising the panel discussion and phone hook up. It was really informative and powerful. I’d love to be able to pass on the discussion to my networks. If there is a recording available could you let me know where and when i might be able to access it to forward it on? I couldn’t clearly identify where on the website. Thanks again.

    I hope the call went well. I sadly missed it, and am wondering if there is a recording to listen to? Please advise.
