Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has been locked in a legal battle to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline from impacting it’s cultural, water, and natural resources. The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is a 1,168-mile long crude oil pipeline that will transport nearly 570,000 barrels of oil each day from North Dakota to Illinois. The Army Corps of Engineers green-lighted several sections of the process without fully satisfying the National Historic Preservation Act, various environmental statutes, and its trust responsibility to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
The Dakota Access Pipeline not only affects the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and surrounding communities, it affects EVERY family in the United States as a whole.
"Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it." - George Santayana and Winston Churchill.
This very moment, history is repeating itself with the Dakota Access Pipeline. When our ancestors came to the United States, they all did so with one thing in common: They desired freedom; freedom to live without intolerance and oppression. Right now our government is not only oppressing the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, it is disregarding the treaty it made with them concerning their land.
How does this affect your family and every family in the United States?
We created a governing system to protect ourselves, but how can we be free or protected if we can't trust that the laws we made will be upheld? I don't know about you, but I don't want a future where l have to live in fear because our word, our laws, and our sanctity means nothing.
When we stand up for and protect the rights of others, we are also protecting our own rights and insuring that the government stays accountable and in check.
I am calling everyone in this Great Nation to stand up for Our Integrity!
Please do not allow the Army Corps to grant Dakota Access an easement - the Tribe's sacred land and resources must be protected!
