ROP is sending a busload of rural Oregonians to Standing Rock and they are bringing needed supplies with them! Racial Justice in Eastern Oregon and Oregon Rural Action are hosting a fundraiser concert, auction, and gear drive Thursday December 8th to help raise needed funds and items. Please attend the event at 112 Depot in La Grande 6:30-8 pm and bring donations of items suggested below and money to donate. Funds raised will go to help pay for a winterized tent with frame, 2 stoves and tent platform.
