THE STORY:

Hi everyone that reads this! My name is Sammie. I've been an avid Berner for the past year and in doing so have woken up to the corruption in our government. Part of that corruption is the Dakota Access Pipeline. In the last year I have came to understand that we as all citizens need to be a part of our communities and fight for what we believe in. I worked diligently to fund Bernie’s delegates, I protested in Philly this summer against the corrupt DNC, for a better planet, for human rights and a better future for my children. Recently I have been textbanking for Jill, registering voters, helping out in my community, educating on the political process and have continued online activism . I have a 13 year old daughter and I am also raising my 3 nephews and my niece who are 8, 7,3 and 5. This is why I am asking for support on my journey to Standing Rock, my income alone cannot support it. I live in WNY and I would be flying to Cedar Rapids, Iowa to meet up with my fellow activists and friends that I met while camping in NJ for the protests and also a former Bernie delegate. From there we will be driving to ND to stand with our Native brothers and sisters to fight the pipeline. We plan on going right before the beginning of December. We will also be taking supplies to contribute to the camp such as water, food, blankets and other supplies that are needed. We will also be taking a big truckload of firewood that is desperately needed for the upcoming winter. I can also provide receipts for your contribution. A rough breakdown is the following: 300-400 to get there and back, some misc. costs and all of the remaining amount will be used for supplies for Standing Rock. I would love the opportunity to go to stand with them and to contribute  but am not able to fund this trip right now independently and would appreciate anything you can spare. Thank you ✌
