We need you to stand in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and more than 150 tribal nations opposing construction of the dangerous, unnecessary and monumentally disrespectful Dakota Access Oil Pipeline.
Sign the letter below and we'll send it to President Obama and share it with tribal leaders fighting this pipeline.
Water is life -- and in North Dakota the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is leading an inspiring and historic battle to protect it by stopping the Dakota Access pipeline.
The pipeline would carry almost 19 million gallons of dirty oil per day from North Dakota to Illinois, slashing through traditional indigenous lands, fragile wildlife habitat, sacred sites and the Missouri River. Spills are inevitable, and the carbon costs to our climate unacceptable.
Led by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, a massive wave of grassroots opposition is building, with protests and civil disobedience temporarily halting plans. But construction is moving forward and scheduled to be completed soon.
President Obama has the power to stop the bulldozers -- and he should. The Army Corps of Engineers rubber-stamped the Dakota Access pipeline this past July using a controversial fast-track permit that shielded cultural and environmental problems from public scrutiny.
Please join us in standing with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Urge President Obama to rescind the Dakota Access pipeline permit and stop this project once and for all.
