PETITION CLOSED. Standing Rock Needs a Lifeline, Not a Deadline.



We invite you to sign your name to an important and urgent statement that calls upon President Obama to act on one of the most significant matters of our time: the Dakota Access Pipeline. The Obama administration can bring an end to the construction of this pipeline that has trampled on Native rights, desecrated sacred lands, threatened the Missouri River, and unleashed an appalling militarized response.

As many of you know, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers and the Governor of North Dakota have issued eviction orders for the largest resistance camp opposing the pipeline. In response to an eviction deadline of December 5th, the statement below calls upon Obama to extend a lifeline by stopping construction. Our goal is to have more than a thousand faith leaders sign this statement that will be publicly released on the morning of the deadline.
