CCAC Sending Support to Standing Rock

Please support Native American efforts to stop construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline extending through four states from North Dakota to Iowa. This pipeline is being built under rivers and sacred sites on reservations along its path. Hundreds have been arrested, many brutally treated by authorities. People protecting their land and water are in need of supplies.

CCAC will be sending volunteers to help our friends fighting for their land rights at Standing Rock, North Dakota.  Please consider donating cash or supplies.  The list of needed supplies is below. 

There are donation centers as listed below, however, if you are close to Allegany County, please contact Meg Krywe at mkrywe@yahoo.com or Spike Jones as spikefox3@yahoo.com to make arrangements.
