Akomplice’s latest project is a statement in support of Standing Rock. In light of Donald Trump’s executive order to expedite the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which is planned to run under the Missouri River through sacred Sioux land, Akomplice has picked up where the fight left off, arm in arm with Standing Rock. To this point, the brand has raised $25,000 with the release of their Standing Rock capsule collection—which features hoodies, crewnecks and even yard signs—they’ve announced that 100% of profits generated from sales will benefit Standing Rock.
Profits will be donated to help fortify and winterize the Standing Rock camps as well as to buy food and kitchen supplies for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. In addition to supplies and direct support donated from profits, each garment works to help spread awareness of the latest round of injustices levied by the U.S. Government against the Sioux tribe. According to Akomplice co-founder Patrick Liberty, “It is time to unify and stand together with the original Americans to protect the water that gives us all life.”
The capsule collection is available now on the Akomplice Webstore and at select Akomplice retailers nationwide.
