Solidarity Sale: Right now, unarmed Water Protectors are standing in defiance of militarized police at Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. They are protesting the construction of a privately-held oil pipeline called the Dakota Access Pipeline on their tribal land. Even though a Federal Court has ruled for a delay in construction, the police response continues to escalate and peaceful protestors have been injured. The United Nations has even issued a statement condemning the use of "unjustified force" by police at Standing Rock. I find this response to unarmed protest by the state an unconscionable act of repression. I think there's something I can do to help.
I am donating 50% of proceeds from everything I sell from 11/24 - 12/5 to Stand With Standing Rock.
I invite you to donate directly if you can as well. To sweeten the deal, if you make a donation (to this or any other organization that supports social justice), let me know and I'll hook you up with a digital copy of any of my games.
But I know it's shopping season! In addition to what's available through my online store and my pay-what-you-want titles, I've dropped prices on shirts available through my store, and keep an eye out for DriveThruRPG's annual Black Friday sale.
Again, 50% of all proceeds from 11/24-12/5, from all channels, will be donated to help the Water Protectors at Standing Rock. Here's a good round-up of info to find out more and follow up on other links to related fundraisers. Thanks for your attention on this, and hopefully by working together even in small ways we can help.
