No Dakota Access Pipeline #NoDAPL

Aug 13, 2023


Welcome to the No Dakota Access Pipeline (#NoDAPL) page of Peace Church's website. We are a community-driven organization committed to standing up against the harmful impacts of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) and advocating for the rights of indigenous communities and the protection of our environment.

The DAPL Controversy

The Dakota Access Pipeline, proposed by Energy Transfer Partners, created a significant controversy due to its potential environmental impact and infringement upon the rights of indigenous communities, particularly the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. The construction of this pipeline raised concerns about water pollution, destruction of sacred lands, and the violation of indigenous treaty rights.

Our Stand Against the DAPL

At Peace Church, we firmly believe in the preservation of our natural resources, respecting cultural heritage, and advocating for justice. We stand in solidarity with the #NoDAPL movement, recognizing the importance of raising awareness and taking action to protect our environment and support indigenous rights.

Environmental Concerns

The Dakota Access Pipeline poses significant environmental risks, crossing multiple water sources, including the Missouri River. Any potential rupture or leak in the pipeline could have catastrophic consequences, polluting water supplies, and harming wildlife. Our goal is to preserve these valuable natural resources for future generations by opposing projects that threaten their integrity.

Social and Cultural Impact

The construction of the DAPL disregards the cultural and spiritual significance of sacred indigenous sites. Peace Church condemns any actions that undermine the rights of indigenous communities to their ancestral lands and heritage. We believe in promoting respect, understanding, and cooperation among diverse cultures and envision a future where indigenous voices are heard and respected.

Our Commitment

Peace Church actively participates in peaceful protests and community initiatives to raise awareness about the issues surrounding the Dakota Access Pipeline. We collaborate with various organizations, indigenous communities, and concerned individuals to collectively work towards a sustainable and just future.

Join the Movement

We invite you to join us in our efforts to protect the environment and support indigenous rights. Together, we can amplify our voices, advocate for change, and make a positive impact on our local and global communities. Whether through peaceful demonstrations, educational events, or engaging in constructive dialogue, every action counts. Together, we can make a difference.


The No Dakota Access Pipeline (#NoDAPL) movement is about more than just a pipeline; it represents a fight for justice, respect, and the safeguarding of our natural resources. Peace Church is proud to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with all those who share our vision of a sustainable and equitable future. Together, let's raise awareness, demand accountability, and work towards a world where communities and the environment are protected.
