STOP THE PIPELINES

Raise Your Voice to Stop Line 3

The Line 3 Expansion is a massive tar sands oil pipeline under construction through the heart of Northern Minnesota. If completed, it would cross a hundred waterways in Minnesota alone, including the headwaters of the Mississippi River. It would also pass extremely close to the border of multiple Native nations and across hundreds of miles of treaty-protected land, which those communities depend on for drinking water and wild rice gathering.

We will not give up on working to #StopLine3! We will continue to draw courageously from our multiple spiritual traditions to resist, renew, and build community as we create a world where everyone can thrive.

One way to take action is by calling on our federal leaders to revoke key federal permits for the pipeline that were rushed through during the end of the Trump administration. Click the link below to send a message today.

Tell President Biden and our federal officials to take action to #StopLine3.

Together We Can #StopLine3
