On March 10, 2017, we will be marching to show solidarity with Standing Rock and the struggle for clean water and the protection of Native Lands. 

At 2PM, there will be a walkout, and a march down to the Gazebo near Civic Park. We will have speakers and food will be served. 

It is crucial that we come together, especially in this predominantly white area, and show solidarity with the water protectors in Standing Rock. Trump has revived the pipeline and is urging its construction. Also, mainstream media has demonized the water protectors, and they have also paid absolutely NO attention to the fact that water protectors have been hosed down with freezing, chemical water, tear gassed, shot with rubber bullets and concussion grenades, attacked with vicious dogs, and SO. MUCH. MORE. Our friends and family at Standing Rock need our unyielding support. Their land has been stolen, colonized, and they have endured and survived genocide on their people and culture. Indigenous resistance is a war that has gone on for centuries--it's about time that we show up for them the way they have for us. 

Bring appropriate signs and dress accordingly to the weather. This march will be YOUTH-LED, and we strongly encourage youth of color and indigenous people to contact us in order to get more involved. Please prioritize marginalized groups, specifically our indigenous friends and family at this event. 

Updates will be posted leading up to this! Thank you, we hope to see you there. ���
