A Gathering to Learn and Collaborate
Friday, October 27, in Marshfield, WI

A movement is growing across the country as communities are opposing proposed pipelines that offer more risks than benefits. Here in Wisconsin, the Enbridge-proposed Line 66 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!

WHAT: People Over Pipelines
WHEN: Friday, October 27, 6:30–9:00 PM (doors open at 6:00)
WHERE: Hotel Marshfield, 2700 Central Ave., Marshfield, WI

 


Speakers include:

  • Jane Kleeb, Bold Alliance
  • Youth Climate Intervenors
  • Mark Borchardt, 80 Feet Is Enough!
  • Paul DeMain, Bear Clan, Oneida/Ojibwe
  • Other impacted Wisconsinites, including landowners, concerned community members and water advocates

Tar Sands Campaign

The Tar Sands Campaign is fighting Enbridge tar sands pipelines in Wisconsin. Our aims are to block expansion of Line 61 and to halt plans for an adjacent Line 66. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and affected community members.

Divestment Campaign

2016 was the hottest year on record. The Divestment Team focuses on convincing institutions that investments in fossil fuel are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. Banks are our current focus since without their support, dirty pipeline projects can't get funded.

Community Energy Campaign

The Community Energy Team is focused on taking action on and responsibility for our own fossil fuel use. We work to create and change policies that impact our energy use and nurture a culture of reducing energy use and using clean, renewable energy to reduce our carbon footprint.
