Campaign for Surviving Genocide

Hello Everyone,

A while back I asked the Defenders Board if Defenders could be the fiscal agent for the Indigenous community here in Rapid City, SD?  They said yes.

Well, we needed to start a fund raising campaign as we need at least 3 attorneys; one to help us with our appeal (fees = $505), one to help with the Civil Rights and Medical Privacy rights violations (mine included); and one to eventually help with the Supplemental Environmental Assessment to stop them from totally destroying almost all the historic buildings.

The usual retainer fee is $100,000 so we are trying to raise at least $200,000.

One of the young men started a fund raising campaign for us.  Share it as you wish.  We need all the help we can get. Thank you.

Here it is:

This is the campaign for Surviving Genocide (Defenders of the Black Hills Inc): https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/surviving-genocide?utm_campaign

Please share as much as you can.

Mission Statement

"Defenders of the Black Hills is a group of volunteers without racial or tribal boundaries whose mission is to preserve, protect, and restore the environment of the 1851 and 1868 Treaty Territories, Treaties made between the United States and the Great Sioux Nation."

Speaking about radioactive fallout, the late President John F. Kennedy said,

"Even then, the number of children and grandchildren with cancer in their bones, with leukemia in their blood, or with poison in their lungs might seem statistically small to some, in comparison with natural health hazards. But this is not a natural health hazard and it is not a statistical issue. The loss of even one human life, or the malformation of even one baby who may be born long after we are gone, should be of concern to us all. Our children and grandchildren are not merely statistics toward which we can be indifferent."
