Berkeley for Standing Rock
C Berkeley students, faculty and staff have expressed solidarity for the efforts of Standing Rock Water Protectors, and with the assertion of rights of the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux tribes in the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline. As a community, a petition was created, calling for our colleagues and educators to speak out and teach about this historic event. UC Berkeley faculty, staff and students from the Native community also circulated and signed a letter of support in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
Now, we have established this blog to share the efforts and experiences of students, faculty, staff and groups in support of Standing Rock. For educators, we hope this can inform what you may teach about this. For aspiring activists, we hope that this informs your choices and efforts. For everyone, we hope this inspires you to spread the word about this historic event and the many issues in our world that are like this.
