UCF and UCC Collaborate to Support the Standing Rock Sioux

November 1, 2016

It is of the utmost importance for United Church Funds to be in collaboration and be in covenant whenever possible with the United Church of Christ. As a faith-based investor, UCF also utilizes our moral voice in matters of environmental, social, and governance impacts. Along with the United Church of Christ, we are now using this voice to support the protest of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe for the rights of self-determination regarding the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. UCF recently hosted a meeting of investors with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman David Archambault II, to learn of ways that we can use shareholder pressure points to be in support of the Sioux Tribe, and all indigenous peoples’ working to maintain and protect their land, water, air and way of life. To learn more about this meeting, please see the following story on UCC.org
