Standing Rock Updates

Update from the #VetStand #AdvanceTeam in #StandingRock

Thank you for your continued support of our stand for Standing Rock. Our campaign has just passed $230K and we are humbled by your kind support. We have already begun putting the funds to good use! Our advance team has been onsite for just over a week, building the right network for ongoing, sustained support of the camp community and addressing the more immediate needs for help.

There are a diversity of needs within the camp infrastructure such as food, supplies, gear and transportation but the biggest overall is manpower, manpower to finalize the cleaning of the camps in the flood zone and moving to the higher ground before the thaw. We are working with several leaders to understand resources available and how to best house the camp community in their new locations, including all hygiene and sanitation needs.

Our team has built a strong network of partners onsite to help us deliver the goods where they are needed most. We are also identifying local vendors to ensure the bulk of the funds stay within the Standing Rock community and local economy. We will continue to work with these partners and investigate others who can assist in building a more consistent and effective supply chain of goods flowing into the camps. When it comes to manpower we are coordinating across our #VetStand network for the generalist and specialist skills that are in most need.

We appreciate there is a great deal of concern and uncertainty given the recent ACoE decision and aggressive movements to begin drilling by DAPL, but we do not believe this stand is close to over. Help us keep this story alive, help us bring this stand to the offices of people investing in DAPL and legislators who are turning a blind eye to civil rights and rule of law being steam rolled. Its time for everyone to take a stand. Share, call, write – make sure your voice is heard and if you’d like to join us in Standing Rock be sure to fill in our sign up roster at www.veterans-stand.org

Thank you,
The Veterans Stand Team
