It's 2021 and we still fighting for our water!

Come out and join our water protectors tomorrow afternoon to share information surrounding the struggle to save our natural resources from being exploited and endangered for our future generations.

Line 3 is a proposed pipeline expansion to bring nearly a million barrels of tar sands per day from Alberta, Canada to Superior, Wisconsin. It was proposed in 2014 by Enbridge, a Canadian pipeline company responsible for the largest inland oil spill in the US. Enbridge seeks to build a new pipeline corridor through untouched wetlands and the treaty territory of Anishinaabe peoples, through the Mississippi River headwaters to the shore of Lake Superior.

All our struggles are connected, if this pipeline is completed- it WILL leak.. and it WILL affect our Great Lakes.

ALL NATIONS RISE!!!
PROTECT OUR GREAT LAKES!!
