Standing Rock: How to Act NOW

Action on behalf of our earth, water and our relatives of Standing Rock

1)  Go to Standing Rock – Some of the tribal leaders of Standing Rock have asked for clergy and lay leaders to come to Standing Rock, especially in the winter months, to keep a strong presence lest the camp be dismantled as a way to repress resistance to the pipeline. PICO partners have offered a place in their camp so that you can get linked into service and action with folks who have been on the ground for months.

2) For an extensive list of officials to call in response to the violence enacted on water protectors the evening of 11/20, read Don't Be Passive Observers of Last Night's Terrorization in Standing Rock: Here's What You Can Do

3) Action at Army Corps of Engineers - for more information as to why the Army Corps and for when the action is occurring, click here.

4) Engage in fighting against local pipelines with Mother’s Out Front - contact Betsy Ericksen at

4) Donations – from the #NoDAPL Solidarity website

5) Follow #noDAPL – on social media, especially Facebook for the most current stories from the front lines

6) Sign this petition asking President Obama to stop the building of the pipeline.

7) Join us on Wednesday, December 7th at Grace Church Medford to hear our stories more fully, engage in conversation and to participate in prayerfully discerning how to continue deepening our support. Dinner begins at 6pm and the program will begin at 6:45.
