We are working on setting up sustainable infrastructure to keep a consistent presence of Black organizers trained and ready to support. This takes resources. Please support as best you can.
For the past year, Indigenous leaders have been on the frontline protecting our water, protecting sacred sites for our ancestors, and protecting life for all of us. With the increase of militarize police and violent escalatory tactics driven by the state, a call to mobilize locally and to support physically in Standing Rock as been made. In response from a call to action directly from Red Warrior camp and other water protectors, Black Lives Matter Global network, is working to raise funds to send chapter members, along with other Black organizers, to support on the front lines in North Dakota. It is our duty to fight for our freedom. Regardless of the rampant attempts of white supremacy to pull us apart, we will not fall into fighting for the crumbs leftover. Our communities will rise together because our liberation is bound. We will win. All funds not spent on travel will be donated to Indigenous groups continuing the fight to protect our water.
Please note this is an official initiative being run by chapters and staff of the Black Lives Matter Global Network.
