Inspired by the work of Standing Rock Sioux water protectors, activist and councilwoman Kshama Sawant started pushing Seattle to pull investments from banks backing DAPL early this year. Her success inspired other cities to follow suit, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Bellingham, Raleigh, Albuquerque, and Berlin.
Read more about her efforts and those of others here, and then send her a thank you for standing up for Standing Rock.
