350 Madison 350 Madison, June 6, 2016

Exciting news! At its convention this past weekend, the Democratic Party adopted resolutions opposing:

  1. Enbridge’s planned Line 66; and
  2. The transportation of Bakken shale oil through Wisconsin by EITHER pipeline or rail.

Kudos to Kaja Rebane and others who worked to make this happen!

Here’s the text of the two resolutions:

Democratic Party Resolutions

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.
