Raise Your Voice to Stop Line 3 Pipeline
On Friday, November 13, Governor Walz and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency permitted construction of the Line 3 pipeline to begin immediately.
We are deeply disappointed by the administration’s action, and we are not giving up.
We will continue to use every possible political channel and legal challenge to stop this destructive and unnecessary pipeline. We will continue to take action to protect the water and the land, to rise up in solidarity with Indigenous peoples and with Native sovereignty, and to build a just and renewable economy in which everyone can prosper.
We know Water Protectors will be on the frontlines to defend the land, the climate, the water, and the wild rice. Follow Giniw Collective, the RISE Coalition, and the Stop Line 3 page for their updates, and rush a donation to the frontlines or the court case as the fight continues!
Tell Attorney General Ellison: Stop Construction!
Before November 30, we need Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison to advocate for a stay against construction. This would block Enbridge and allow the lawsuits filed by the Department of Commerce, tribal nations, and environmental groups to be heard in court.
Attorney General Ellison has been a climate champion in the past, suing fossil fuel giant Exxon for the harm they’ve caused to Minnesota communities. Let him know we are counting on him to stop Line 3 construction and protect our climate, our clean water, and Native communities along the pipeline.

As we work towards the world our hearts know is possible, Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light recognizes the vital work of resisting projects that would damage our communities. New oil pipelines endanger our clean water and air; they’re an investment in the toxic fossil fuel infrastructure that’s driving the climate crisis.
Communities across Minnesota are standing up to Line 3, a massive new tar sands oil pipeline proposed through the heart of Northern Minnesota. Together we will #StopLine3!
