Defund DAPL Action (Ellsworth)

March 24, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Our Lakota sisters and brothers have asked us to pressure the banks that are funding the Dakota Access Pipeline to withdraw funding commitments.

TD Bank is one of the 17 financial institutions funding the pipeline that threatens the water of the Missouri River and desecrates land that is sacred to the Sioux, including burial grounds.

You can read more details here:

Stand with us as we continue to call for TDBank to #DefundDAPL!
This will be an outside event, so please dress accordingly.

We invite you to join us in the Spirit of Peaceful Non-Violent Prayer for a Change of Heart to Defund DAPL. Please spread the word and bring your friends!
