FRIDAY January 27, 2017–1454 days to go
What a crazy week it’s been! I don’t know if anyone could have predicted how contemptible Trump’s first seven days in office would be or how fired up it would make the rest of us.
Today’s call to action? Let’s focus on the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Why should you care about DAPL? The Standing Rock Sioux tribe and other Native American groups have been protesting the project, which they say would imperil their water supplies and disturb sacred burial and archaeological sites. The Army Corp of Engineers called a halt to the project in December to consider alternative routes. Oil pipelines continue our reliance on fossil fuels and can burst, which ruins water supplies.
1) Is your bank helping to fund DAPL? Call or write to let them know just how angry you are that they use the money we’ve entrusted to them to endanger human lives. Lots of banks are involved. Phone numbers and addresses below.
2) Army Corps of Engineers Civil Works Dept.
SCRIPT FOR BOTH:
Hi, my name is [Name] and I’m a citizen from [City, State].
I’m calling today to express my deep concern over the Dakota Access Pipeline.
The proposed route of the DAPL crosses both a nearby aquifer and the Missouri River which provide water for drinking and agriculture to millions of people. The pipeline crosses the Missouri River just north of Standing Rock’s tribal boundaries endangering sacred lands and invaluable cultural heritage. The Standing Rock Sioux tribe has tirelessly fought to stop this pipeline which was already rejected from crossing the Missouri near Bismarck due to it’s potential threat to Bismarck’s water supply.
This pipeline is not in our environmental best interest
[and I ask the Army Corps of Engineers to take these issues into serious consideration when compiling its environmental impact report.] OR
[and I ask _____ Bank to stop funding the pipeline]

Operation 1461 is a project focused on Action Items to oppose Trump’s destructive agenda. If he serves a full term, Donald Trump will be our president for 1461 days. Let’s use each day to drive toward progressive causes instead of “hoping for the best.”
