Date: 
Mon, Apr 23, 2018 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

April 23, 2018, marks the 65th anniversary of Enbridge’s easement that allows them to operate two pipelines, collectively known as Line 5, in the Straits of Mackinac.

It's time for Line 5 to retire. These pipelines were estimated to last 50 years yet, they are currently shipping 23 MILLION gallons of oil & gas through the Great Lakes everyday. Line 5 is a major threat to the drinking water of 35 million people and enough is enough.

Shut Down Line 5 - Grass Roots Advocacy Night

Date: 
Wed, Feb 28, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Come out to write to your State Representatives and Senators to encourage them to support the shut down of Line 5. Line 5 is an aging oil pipeline that runs through the Great Lakes, just west of the Mackinaw Bridge, which if broken, would contaminate 84% of North America's fresh water, and 21% of the world's fresh water. Paper, envelopes, and stamps will be provided, along with snacks! See you there.
