Trip to Standing Rock
My name is Gabriela Meza and I am a second year political science student at UCLA. I am very involved and active with social and political organizations on and off campus.
I have marched against the Dakota Access Pipeline in Downtown Los Angeles and at a fundraiser for Hilary Clinton in Beverly Hills in which we demanded the attention of President Obama to stop the pipeline.
I am planning on spending Thanksgiving break fighting for our water alongside our Native brothers and sisters at the Standing Rock Reservation. I am very passionate about this issue and am 100% commited to fighting on the front lines. But because I am a full time, independent student, it is not financially feasable for me to go and help defend native lands. I am raising money for travel expenses, food and equipment needed to stay at the reservation from 11/23/16 to 11/27/16.
Any contribution is very much appreciated!
Thanks in Advance <3
Hello Gabriela! I am very aligned with what you are doing. I am also from LA, and would be highly interested in joining you on the trip and splitting cost expenses! Please let me know if you are interested in having me along. With love, Candice
