One of the organizations that can most positively influence the preservation of our quality of life here in South Dakota is Dakota Rural Action.
They are a grassroots, family agriculture, and conservation group wherein the members are able to identify energy, natural resource, and farmland issues in their area and get back-up help and support from the organization.
In this area, the Hyperion oil refinery/Gorilla Project has been worrying a lot of residents. I would like to see a larger DRA membership base here so that we can engage their resources and support to help us with the land, water, and clean air issues we’ve been talking about lately.
We need all the help we can get, and the more members we can gather from this area, the more we can count on their support. You don’t need to be a farmer or producer to join–you just need to be concerned about the quality of life and the preservation of natural resources here in South Dakota.
The link to Dakota Rural Action’s website is both above and to your right, and the link to their membership form is here.
You can join at one of their standard membership rates (which are very reasonable), or use the “limited income” option. Please consider joining DRA today.
There is strength in numbers!
