In 2016, Christian Authors on Tour (CAOT) is not hosting a Christian book tour. Thus, CAOT won't be collecting in-kind donations in 2016. However, CAOT is spotlighting various Christian missions causes each month of the year. Feel free to find a local Christian missions effort in your neck of the woods that focuses on one of the following issues:

In North Dakota, Indigenous leaders from the Standing Rock Nation are fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). This pipeline will carry over a half a million barrels of oil per day from the Bakken Oil Shale Fields. The route the pipeline will take, if approved, will be laid under multiple bodies of water, to include the Missouri River located a half mile upstream from the Standing Rock reservation.
This river not only supplies drinking water to the tribe but is a major tributary to the Mississippi River where more than 10 million people depend on it for both human consumption and irrigation for the nation’s “bread basket.” This pipeline when it fails – and it will fail – will destroy land and water with little, if any, chance of remediation / cleanup. We only need to look at the devastating Yellowstone River, Kalamazoo, and many others. Protesters have continued to resist construction peacefully, despite surveillance and intimidation from the state.
