Your Help is Needed for Standing Rock Elders and Friends Attending UUA General Assembly

Six Standing Rock elders and Oceti Sakowin representatives are coming to Kansas City and planning to attend UUA General Assembly, presenting a double-workshop on Saturday, and also a public event on Sunday evening.

Only 7 days remain in the Faithify campaign.  Though the campaign is half way to the official goal of $3,500, the stretch goal is $4,500.

Please Donate Today.

The Oceti Sakowin Camp and water protectors convergence at Standing Rock was a historic, transformative space that drew thousands of people from across the world together for protecting water, indigenous sovereignty, and the sacredness of Mother Earth from the Dakota Access Pipeline and the ongoing devastation caused by continued fossil fuel extraction and repression of Indigenous peoples.

One continued blessing to the Unitarian Universalist faith community after the experiences at Oceti Sakowin was an invitation to be in ongoing relationship and collaboration with the Indigenous-led InterNātional Initiative for Transformative Collaboration (INITC), and Stories and Songs of the People. For more information about the Collaboration, visit the  INITC website.

Your gift to this fundraiser will greatly help the INITC and Stories & Songs of the People to comfortably attend the full General Assembly: building and deepening relationships with members of our UU faith, and celebrating the ordination of Rev. Karen Van Fossan (minister of the UU Fellowship and Church of Bismarck-Mandan) during the Service of the Living Tradition.

Thank you for your generosity and support!
