Follow up to SCYM Concern for Indigenous Peoples at Standing Rock

To clerks of monthly meetings and worship groups in South Central Yearly Meeting,

 
At the Representatives' Meeting on November 20, 2016, the Meeting directed the Clerk to write to the President and other relevant authorities about Meeting's concern for the rights of indigenous peoples and human and civil rights of the Water Protectors at Standing Rock, North Dakota. 
 
I have now sent this letter as directed and am sharing it with the Yearly Meeting through all of you.  Please share as you are led.

The letter refers to a statement by Quaker Earthcare Witness from September, and here is the link to that statement:
