Activists gathered in Washington, D.C., to #StandWithStandingRock.
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is trying to block a pipeline in North Dakota.
The $3.8 billion pipeline is supposed to run from oil fields in North Dakota to Illinois. It doesn't quite cross through the Standing Rock reservation, but it will cross the Missouri River less than a mile away.
