Visiting the yUUrt at Standing Rock

img_1023-jpgThe Bismarck North Dakota Unitarian Universalist Congregation has been the only Bismarck community of faith that has publicly supported the Water Protectors at Standing Rock. It was an honor to visit the main camp yesterday to see the ongoing witness of the hearty Water Protectors who are weathering sub-zero temperatures over the winter. Tribal elders has asked for no more responders to come to Standing Rock. Our UU Trauma Response Team is here in Bismarck to support the congregation and to facilitate some conversations around its role. The Fellowship has done some amazing work transporting and housing supporters, moving supplies, and building an interfaith shelter for religious leaders.
