Similar to the Keystone XL pipeline, Enbridge Energy’s Line 3 is a massive tar sands oil pipeline slated for construction across the northern part of Minnesota, from Canada’s tar sands region to Superior, Wisconsin. If built, the pipeline would carry some of the dirtiest oil in the world, tar sands crude, even as cleaner energies are becoming cheaper and cheaper and provide more long-lasting jobs throughout the nation. The proposed pipeline would cross over 200 bodies of water, including the Mississippi River. Twice. Line 3 also violates several treaties with the Ojibwe people which establishes the right for Indigenous people to hunt, fish, and gather along the proposed pipeline route.

In the face a global climate crisis, Line 3 is a direct threat to our collective future. Sign this Pledge of Resistance and help create a world with clean water, clean energy, and a healthy climate for all people.
