Action Alerts! Speak up for land, water, and Indigenous rights! Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline carries toxic petroleum products through northern Wisconsin, bisecting the reservation of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. With the tribe demanding the removal of the pipeline, Enbridge is seeking approval of an alternative route that would remain within the watershed, barely skirting the reservation and putting the health and livelihood of tribal members, the region’s wildlife and wetlands, and Lake Superior’s coastline at risk. But there’s still time to act! The DNR is considering Enbridge’s application for a waterway and wetland permit and the scope of the required environmental impact statement. Submit your written comments by email to email@example.com or by US mail to Line 5 Comments, DNR (EA/7), 101 S. Webster St., Madison, WI 53707. All electronic and hard-copy comments must be submitted or postmarked by no later than Saturday, July 11, 2020. Find more information here. ——————–

There is no climate justice without racial justice.
We’re in a time of multiple crises: virulent racism and police violence; a global pandemic; widespread unemployment; extreme polarization in the political sphere; and of course, the climate emergency.
350 Madison stands in solidarity with people the world over who are working for justice, equity, and preservation of a livable planet. Climate justice works hand in hand with racial and social justice, and we won’t stop working until both are achieved. If you’re interested in joining our Climate Justice workgroup, contact Tanace Matthiesen at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Tar Sands Campaign is fighting Enbridge tar sands pipelines in WI. 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.
The Divest & Defund Team works to convince institutions that investments in fossil fuels are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. We are currently focusing on banks that fund pipeline projects.
Community Climate Solutions focuses on making change across Dane County, targeting both systems and individual levels. We assist local governments to achieve climate goals. We broaden and deepen citizen climate crisis awareness and action.
