VeteransRespond to Standing Rock Fundraiser

  • The Kava Lounge 2812 Kettner Blvd San Diego, California 92101 (map)

"Our work is ongoing at Standing Rock and other places in the country. We have about 20-30 vets at Standing Rock right now, and that have been there for a couple weeks. We also have people rotating between Apache Stronghold in Arizona and Two Rivers Camp in Texas. I am scheduled to bring 10-15 people and supplies out to Standing Rock on March 24th. February 22nd is supposed to be a mandatory eviction though and we are waiting to see what happens. VeteransRespond is simultaneously planning to stay at Standing Rock for the long term, but is also planning an evacuation mission for many of the homeless vets that were left behind back in December. If something happens between now and March 24th, and there is no more Standing Rock, I will be taking my group out to support Apache Stronghold instead."
