“While we cannot all physically stand in the Camp of Sacred Stones today, let us hold, both in spoken word and silent prayer, the aspirations of the Sioux people and urge our policymakers to protect and responsibly steward our water, the sacred gift from God that sustains us all.” These words from our Presiding Bishop Michael Curry were part of his powerful statement issued on August 25 in support of the Standing Rock protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Following that statement, the Presiding Bishop invited Episcopalians to help support the Diocese of North Dakota as it ministers to the protesters — including immediate help for the costs being incurred on the ground in the three protest camps on and near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, and advocacy actions that can be taken to support the protesters’ concerns.

And stay tuned for other opportunities for action in the days and weeks ahead as we keep those who protest and those who work for a just solution in our prayers.
