The Problem

Oil giant Enbridge continues to pump millions of gallons of oil, daily, through two 66 year old dilapidated pipelines across the turbulent waters of the Straits of Mackinac, endangering, the world’s largest freshwater basin and the plants, animals, and US citizens whose lives depend on it. Our mission is to force Enbridge to shut down Line 5 before it’s too late.

Our Plan

To release educational videos encouraging others to lobby for the state of Michigan to cease the flow of oil through the pipeline.
