Grieving and Moving Forward on Line 3
This year brought a disappointing milestone to the eight-year fight against the Line 3 tar sands pipeline. Despite a faithful and brave resistance, the MN Pollution Control Agency, Governor Walz, and President Biden all failed in honoring Native treaties and protecting our sacred and sensitive lands and water. Dirty oil now flows through northern Minnesota and Indigenous land.
This is a time of mourning for all of us and especially for those who risked their safety and relationships to stand against the pipeline. This is a time to reflect on our shortcomings in following the leadership of Indigenous people. This is a time to ground ourselves in our spiritual practices and traditions that give us strength and guidance for the way forward—both collectively and as individuals.
We know space for grieving is essential, and we invite you to join us for a meaningful time to mourn with other people of faith and conscience. In community, let us find renewal and continue moving forward in the movement to end all pipelines and all fossil fuel projects. We won’t stop until we build back a fossil free world that is just and sustainable for all.
This is an MNIPL Community Connector webinar, and all are welcome! On the 1st Tuesday of each month, we deepen into a different topic related to climate justice. Through shared learning and conversation, we hope you can feel more confident and empowered to help grow the climate movement. Whether it’s with a community of faith or spiritual practice, neighborhood group, circle of friends, etc., we are all community connectors!
