Water is Life! From Standing rock to to Ramapough – November 30th fundraiser

Over the past several months, a historic alliance of Indigenous Nations and water protectors has taken root at Standing Rock. The Sioux Nation and their allies have inspired the world with a courageous and prayerful resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline, protecting land and water, their ancestry and culture, and their basic right to exist. These issues are all connected and central to the popular movement for clean water and a safe climate future.

On November 30th, The Center for Sustainability at Ramapo College, The Ramapough Lenape Nation, and Food & Water Watch invite you to “Water is Life! From Standing Rock to Ramapough”, a night of culture, education and solidarity for indigenous rights and water protection.

All proceeds to support the water protectors at Standing Rock and The Ramapough Lunaape Nation

Campaigns to protect water from fracking, oil and gas pipelines, and to hasten the transition to clean, renewable energy are being led in communities throughout the world. Here in New York and New Jersey, we are organizing to stop similarly destructive pipelines like Spectra AIM and Pilgrim, which would desecrate sacred sites and land in the Ramapough Mountains, and threaten the health, safety and drinking water for Millions. These unnecessary proposals are all connected and must be stopped if we are to protect our homes and our right to a safe and livable climate future.

Let’s come together to support front line water protectors at Standing Rock, and the continued growth of the historic water is life movement!
