On April 9, the Biden administration announced that it will not take immediate action to shut down the Dakota Access Pipeline while the government conducts a court-ordered environmental review. The controversial pipeline has been transporting toxic crude oil near the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s reservation since 2017 and operating illegally since March 25, 2020.
It's time to put pressure on the White House. Though President Biden has stated his commitment to improving tribal consultation and taking bold action to tackle climate change, his administration took a stance today that is identical to that of the Trump administration.
“We are gravely concerned about the continued operation of this pipeline, which poses an unacceptable risk to our sovereign nation,” said Mike Faith, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. “In a meeting with members of Biden’s staff earlier this year, we were told that this new administration wanted to ‘get this right.’ Unfortunately, today’s update from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers shows it has chosen to ignore our pleas and stick to the wrong path.”
The Tribe has persisted through five years of court battles to protect their home and their health from the Dakota Access Pipeline, and they will continue to fight with Earthjustice at their side.
Tell Biden to permanently shut down Dakota Access Pipeline and others around the country, because they have no place in our fossil-free future.
Why is a phone number required? Unfortunately, the Biden administration requires that your letter includes certain information, including a phone number. We only ask for a phone number because of this requirement. If your letter does not include a phone number, it cannot be delivered to the Biden administration's electronic mail system.
