Fundraiser to support Standing Rock Tribe

Posted by Tim on November 28, 2016 in Academics, Event

Our club is hosting an open mic night fundraiser to support the Standing Rock Tribe and her allies in their peaceful protest of the construction of the North Dakota Access Pipeline under the Missouri River. Among other reasons, we decided to host this event for the following reasons:

Respect and solidarity for the land rights of indigenous peoples

Support of the United Nations’ stance of water as an inalienable right

Pressure to switch to more sustainable sources of energy

Defend the voice of the People over corporate greed

We will be accepting a suggested donation of $5 at the door, and light refreshments will be served. All proceeds will directly benefit the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Dakota Access Pipeline Donation Fund (standingrock.org). If you are a musician, poet, or artist interested in sharing your talents, please sign up on the link below.
