December is a Month of Action in support of the indigenous people fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline. Here’s how to tell the White House #NoDAPL. Start if possible 5 AM weekday. First try calling directly to Comments: 202-456-1111. If busy, call Switchboard: 202-456-1414 and say, “I have a #NoDAPL request for the President.” The operator will put you through to the Comment Line where you can wait for an open line.

A human will take a message for the President, be short and courteous like, “Please stop the attacks on the people at Standing Rock, North Dakota.”

Other actions:
–Call Morton Co Sheriff: 701-667-3330 (it is so far always busy, but maybe early AM works). “Stop protecting those constructing the Dakota Access Pipeline and instead protect the indigenous people who oppose it.”
–Call North Dakota Highway Patrol 701-328-2455 with same message as to Morton County.
–Send President Obama an email on his webform:
–Sign the letter to Member of Congress Julia Brownley. Local groups that include Janet Tallarigo Murphy is gathering physical signatures to deliver.Let her know when you have at least 5 signatures. Here is the text of the letter and a signature collecting form in Janet’s facebook post to copy and paste into a word doc to gather five signatures per page. Here it is in a googledoc. This is only a petition; it is not a signup for email or contact list. Over 80 signatures were collected on Main Street, Ventura, on Friday.
