Stand Up Like a Mountain

This campaign started with Standing Rock Fortification and is part of our partner organizations' ongoing effort to educate our community about the need to divest from fossil fuels, to cultivate sustainable energy options and to protect our shared resources.  Some people call it environmental work, but we consider it Mother Earth restoration.  In 2016, we supported activists to fortify the camp in North Dakota with supplies, with people, and with financial support. Additionally, we will provide opportunity for folks to move in action in solidarity with our sisters and brothers here in the Inland Empire.

Join the campaign with your support and join in at upcoming find out more about our partner organizations and activities including the local Air and Water Team, SB County Water Defenders and more.
