Water Is Life
In an act of solidarity, members of the Homestead Atlanta family are traveling to North Dakota on November 14th to provide medical and logistical support to the water protectors at Standing Rock.
Head of our herbalism program, Lorna Mauney-Brodek, will be joined on the Herb Bus by Homestead founder Kimberly Coburn and instructor Darby Weaver. We're humbled and honored to support the defenders at the Camp of the Sacred Stones as the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe courageously protects both the water and their rights as a sovereign nation. If you would like to contribute directly to our journey, you may do so through the Donate button.
(Please note all donations will be made through the Herbalista Health Network's 501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor and will appear on your statement as Mpower Now.)
Other Ways to Help
Due to limited space, we will be unable to carry supplies additional to what we're already transporting unless they are small and of high need in the camp. You may send supplies or donations directly to the Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council utilizing this current list of needs or to the Camp of the Standing Stones.
