Rise with Standing Rock

  • Nottingham Park 1 Lake Street Avon, CO, 81620 United States (map)

Rise together in solidarity with Standing Rock!

On Friday, March 10, 2017, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe will be marching on Washington, D.C., to continue their fight against the DAPL. They have asked our nation to stand in solidarity with them on this day.

Our community, along with others throughout Colorado, will come together to show our support. Please join us in telling the President – who claims he’s heard no complaints – that our indigenous people are more important than oil, and that he must take into consideration tribal treaty rights, natural resources, cultural and sacred places, socio-economical concerns, environmental justice, and the health of those who rely on the drinking water.

The very small number of permanent jobs (40, by estimates) that the DAPL will create is not worth the enormous risk to our environment and to the livelihood of the Sioux people.

We urge you to rise with us from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. on March 10th at Nottingham Park in Avon. Details to follow.
