Rights and Standing Rock

  • Jerome Greene Hall Room 107 New York, New York (map)

At the height of the standing rock demonstrations in October 2016, North Dakota state and local law enforcement indefinitely closed the primary road connecting the standing rock reservation to the main public sites in contention. The nine-mile road closure, which lasted five months, prevented access to these sites limiting residents' right to assemble, pray, express themselves, and freely travel.

In October 2018, a lawsuit was filed by affected residents.

Join plaintiffs, activists, and lawyers on November 19 to discuss this important and current case.
