“Be The Shift” uses the Cheyenne River Sioux Water Infrastructure project as a launching pad to empower people to create sustainable, lasting change in their communities and countries through awareness of the current issues and conditions, alternatives that promote dignity, justice, unity, and accountability, and taking action that supports the creation of these alternatives.”
Spencer, who is a Native American from the Lakota Sioux tribe in Idaho and Montana has been especially active in the campaign. After hearing of the disaster in South Dakota, Spencer felt compelled to help. In less than a day, he produced a PSA through his production company Urban Dreams Production, enlisting the assistance of his celebrity friends to raise awareness and support to those who have been without power and water for weeks. The PSA urged individuals to “shift the power to the people” and help to empower everyone to create sustainable, lasting change in their communities and countries. In less than a month over 13,000 letters went to Congress as a result of the viral PSA campaign.
