Road to Standing Rock

$1,050 of $500 goal

Raised by 27 people in 23 months
Maria, Josh, and I will be driving from New York to Standing Rock this week. We hope to make stops in Michigan and other Midwest locations along the way. We have been in contact with organizers over the past month and will be documenting, photographing, and videotaping the drive and sharing it with you all in real time. Our trip begins tomorrow evening.

Due to the harsh winter in the Dakotas, we are fundraising for supplies to deliver in Standing Rock, namely bundles of wood, wood-burning stoves, cots, sub-zero sleeping bags, etc. All supplies on the list (including tech) have been requested by organizers and will be left at camp.

Throughout our trip (Monday evening-Saturday morning) we will be broadcasting footage and conversations from our drive. You can follow us on Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram for updates.

We've had great support from friends and family so far - they have helped us with trip planning, connecting us to people along the way, donating supplies and giving professional advice, providing well wishes, and more. A local farmer even surprised us with a magnum bottle of his vineyard's wine as a goodwill gift of his support (we were very touched)! We would like to involve as many people as possible along the way, and your messages and contributions will tremendously benefit those who need it.

Hello friends!

Thank you so much, once again, for your support of our trip to Standing Rock. We wanted to share a Women's March update and also send out a small thank-you present to our supporters.

We will be getting the gang together later today to drive down to the Women's March in DC. Look out for our Live videos on Alexandria's Facebook page. If you will be there, join us! We'd be happy to send you our location information and the Standing Rock meeting point.

Additionally, message, text, or email Alexandria with your mailing address and we will have a photo print from our trip mailed out to you. We may follow-up with anyone who has disclosed us their information to make sure you get our thanks!

All the best,
Maria, Josh, and Alexandria

Friends,

We have arrived to Oceti Sakowin! We pulled in last night after sunset, right on the night of the winter solstice. The stars are so bright that at a certain hour you don't even need a headlamp. Make sure you follow Alexandria on Facebook for live updates.

We are staying in a tent with three cots, a wood-burning stove, and subzero sleeping bags. This morning we made our first purchase with your donations - $20 worth of gas for the camp's centers generators.

Thank you so much for all of your contributions and will try to go live as soon as possible. Since so many of you are tuning in we will be getting MEDIA PASSES for special access! THANK YOU!

Hey guys! We'll be back on live as soon as we can (who would've thought hi-speed LTE would thin out in the Dakotas?). In the meantime, will you help us DOUBLE our initial GoFundMe goal? We are at $815 now - can we hit $1,000 by Christmas?

We are blown away by the contributions given to us thus far - thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for your donations, follows, shares, comments, and support. Stay tuned and we'll upload offline content where we can.

Lots of love,
Alex, Josh, and Maria
We're just near Jamestown, North Dakota

This is just asinine! If you can’t even manage a place to live you should’ve never run for office. It’s obvious you have no clue about politics, have barely been a US citizen for a few years and clearly do not know how to budget and plan accordingly. You are unfit for the position. Shame on those who voted you in.

just pay for it, even a 10 year old would of known maybe this was something you should of thought of before hand. Maybe Bernie will give you a free place to live and buy you food and give you a spending allowance, what did you really think that you were going to find any free housing in DC or anywhere? Go sleep in a cardboard box, we have Americans doing that, better yet go hook up with MS13

What was your plan when you ran for office? You knew you were broke. You want a handout just like the people that voted for you.

I'm so proud of all that Alexander Ocasico-Cortez has accomplished despite being poor. I too grew up poor. It's about time that this Country accepts cultural diversity. Keep going and stand strong. You are an inspiration to so many of all races.
