2020 Accomplishments from Lakota People´s Law Project

Our team here in Lakota Country hopes you are enjoying a safe and happy holiday season. Thank you for standing with the Lakota people this year!

2020 brought challenges and changes, showing us all the importance of joining together to stand strong in support of equality and justice. We believe that, now more than ever, Native voices must be heard. You can ensure that Indigenous people continue to rise. Will you contribute a year-end donation in 2020? One, final tax-deductible gift can go a long way toward accomplishing our shared mission to protect sacred lands, safeguard human rights, promote sustainability, reunite Indigenous families, and much more.

I encourage you to watch our new video, in which I detail our many, impressive shared accomplishments in 2020 — and our vision for progress together in the year to come.

Thanks to you, the Lakota People’s Law Project made life better for so many this year. You helped us support Standing Rock’s legal fight against DAPL and partner with the tribe to activate Native and swing state voters. You kept tribal health and safety checkpoints operational, protecting Cheyenne River and Pine Ridge during the COVID-19 pandemic. You sent nearly 10,000 petitions urging president-elect Joe Biden to appoint the first Indigenous Cabinet member — a fight we won when he picked Rep. Deb Haaland for Secretary of the Interior! 
 
We have so much more to accomplish together in 2021. Please continue to stay with us so we can permanently end DAPL and KXL, get the vote out for the Georgia Senate run-off elections, and expand our kinship care program at Standing Rock, ensuring that the next generation of Lakota youth is cared for and given every opportunity to succeed.

This is your last chance to give a tax-deductible gift in 2020. Please give a year-end gift from the heart to help accomplish all this and more. 2020 showed us that life can bring unexpected challenges at any time. We plan to be there to meet them in 2021. Please continue to support our mission for justice. We can’t do any of this without you!

Wopila Tanka — we’re so grateful for your friendship.
