The repression of water protectors of Standing Rock has overwhelmingly targeting Indigenous people.

We will be raising funds for the commissary five incarcerated Indigenous water protectors and to support folks on the frontlines fighting Line 3. 

There will be snacks and drinks to share.

Attendees will also have the ability to learn more about what Rising Tide Chicago is working on this year and how to take part. Rising Tide Chicago is working to get Chase bank to stop funding fossil fuels and to support folks in MN fighting Enbridge Line 3.
