Event description

Description

A movement is growing across the country as communities are opposing proposed pipelines that offer more risks than they do benefits. From North Dakota to Minnesota, tribes are calling for their sovereignty, hunting and gathering rights, and their treaty rights to be upheld. Landowners from Georgia to Virginia to Nebraska are standing up for their property rights and opposing eminent domain for oil pipelines. Faith leaders, concerned community members, environmentalists, climate activists and more are all standing together.

Here in Wisconsin, Enbridge is moving forward on plans for another oil pipeline through the heart of Wisconsin--the Line 61-twin or Line 66. The pipeline could jeopardize our major waterways (like the Namekagon River, Wisconsin River, and Rock River), our property rights, the safety of our communities, our climate, and more.

Join us Friday, October 27 to discover the lessons-learned from pipeline fights around the country, hear from those threatened by the proposed pipeline, and find out where you fit in protecting land and water from tar sands pipelines. Tribal members, Enbridge easement-holders, environmentalists, youth activists and more will come together to learn from each other and decide how we'll team up to stop the pipeline!

SPEAKER UPDATES:
