We talk with Ryan Schleeter (@RySchlee) about the Dakota pipeline and the indigenous resistance against it. If you want to stand in solidarity against the pipeline, here’s some info from Ryan:

To support the Standing Rock Sioux directly, head to www.standingrock.org (legal fund, donate supplies, etc.)
Greenpeace is organizing supply drives across the country to send to the Sacred Stone and Red Warrior camps: www.greenpeace.org/usa/nodapl. The last day to donate is this Monday (when the show will air), so I’ll let you decide if this makes sense to include.
Like I said in the interview, POTUS can revoke the permits and kill the project any time he wants. Folks can call the White House comment line at 1-888-369-5791 (you’ll be provided a set of talking points before being connected to the comment line).
If you want to show up at a solidarity rally, find one near you at https://nodaplsolidarity.org/
