Travel to Standing Rock for the December 4 Interfaith Day of Prayer
The Water Protectors have consistently asked all people of conscience to consider showing up in person to show solidarity with the #NoDAPL movement, and keep the world focused on the struggle there. In particular, Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Spiritual Leader of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota nations, has issued a call for all people of faith and conviction to come to Standing Rock for an Interfaith Day of Prayer on December 4, 2017 .
MUUSJA will be helping to coordinate caravans of Unitarian Universalists from around the state for the December 4 event. If you are interested in connecting with other UUs planning to attend, please fill out this Google form - you can indicate where you'd like to leave from, and if you need a ride or would like to offer one to others. Once we determine the interest, we will help ensure that folks connect with each other and can make plans for traveling. We will also likely be sponsoring a large van that will leave from Minneapolis, with spots available for clergy and/or lay people both from the Twin Cities and around the country.
If you are planning, or considering, a trip to Standing Rock, please read the four documents linked here about how to prepare for, be respectfully and helpfully present at, and return from the camps.
