Sign a petition to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.

You can do that here.

Send supplies.

Thousands of people now based at the encampment will need shelter, food, and warmth to get through the cold temperatures.

The Sacred Stone camp has a fairly comprehensive website that includes current needs. Checks, cash or supplies can be sent via mail to: Sacred Stone Camp, P.O. Box 1011, Fort Yates, ND 58538, or 202 Main St., Fort Yates, ND 58538.

There’s an Amazon wish list here.

Protesters said they also need a four-wheel-drive pickup truck and ask that those willing to donate one contact them at sacredstonecamp@gmail.com. The truck “will be used for getting water, firewood, and other supplies to the camp,” the protesters’ website says. “We are in need so something that can handle harsh cold, snow, and steep dirt roads.”

The Standing Rock Medic + Healer Council, which takes care of injured protesters, has an Amazon wish list that can be found here.

Donate to the Standing Rock Sioux.

The tribe is soliciting donations for legal, sanitary and emergency purposes via PayPal. You also may contribute by mailing a check (payable to Standing Rock Sioux Tribe ― Donations) to: Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Attention: Donations, P.O. Box D, Building #1, North Standing Rock Ave., Fort Yates, ND 58538.

Donate to the protesters’ legal defense fund.

As legal bills for protesters pile up, they’re asking for help in paying processing fees. The PayPal account is freshetcollective@gmail.com.
