WHAT: Disrupt ‘business-as-usual” and demand that the federal Army Corps of Engineers and incoming administration stop the Dakota Access pipeline. One week after the election, and one year after movements stopped the Keystone XL pipeline, many groups are banding together to protest the Dakota Access and stop all fossil fuel infrastructure.
HOW TO JOIN: Find an Army Corps office near you, or sign up to host an action in your city to support those fighting on the front lines. You can also join or host an action at a bank that’s financing the pipeline.
