We Stand with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe
A federal appeals court officially halted construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAP) this week to give the court more time to rule on the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's emergency injunction request--an effort to prevent the further destruction of sacred sites and burial grounds. Boston Common stands with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. We have a long history of leading initiatives to advocate for the human rights of Indigenous Peoples, especially in connection with the environment and extractive industry activities.

We are helping to organize another investor call on September 28th with Tribal officials and experts to support shareholder engagement regarding the DAP.  We invite all to attend. Establishing partnerships in which companies and Indigenous communities can engage in active dialogues to discuss key issues and work towards solutions that satisfy all parties are the best practices that, in our experience, lead to long-term success. Please contact me for more details about the investor call.
