Mni Wiconi! Water is Life! I am quickly mobilizing to return to Standing Rock and I need your support!
I am an attorney who has been called for a 2-4 week commitment assisting in the on the ground legal defense at Standing Rock. I have been to Standing Rock previously and am thoroughly vetted for the work. I am a 53 year old mother of 2 boys who lives in Humboldt County California. I have criminal law defense experience from having been a public defender. I have been committed to sustainability for decades and successfully started and ran projects such as the We The People School of Sustainability with Governor Jerry Brown and Fund Humboldt. I surf and stand up paddle and just generally love to be anywhere near the water.
Standing Rock needs lawyers on the ground to help more than ever. I am just looking to cover my airfare as the legal team there will be providing housing and local transportation.
Can you see a Mobile Army of Attorneys throughout the country coming to the aid of those protecting our most vulnerable who are fighting for social and environmental justice? I can! My larger visions is to have mobile units available to attorneys in every state. Please contact me if you are interested in the larger project.
Thank you for your consideration!
