$20 suggested donation at door - all funds go the L’eau Est La Vie Camp and its projects, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

The L’eau Est La Vie Camp is a continuation of our fight in Standing Rock, and furthermore a continuation of the centuries old fight to protect sacred stolen territory. The Camp centers the voices of indigenous, black, femme, and two spirit organizers. The camp fought in the bayous of Louisiana, Chata Houma Chittimacha Atakapa-Ishak territory, to stop constriction of Energy Transfer Partner’s Bayou Bridge Pipeline - the tail end of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The camps sustained resistance campaign delayed the completion of the Pipeline over a year. In addition to costing ETP upwards of a billion dollars, the L’eau Est La Vie Camps galvanized the fight for climate justice in the Gulf South and serves as an amazing example of how effective a small group of committed activists with powerful leadership can be.
