LOVE WATER, NOT OIL!
Big oil companies like Enbridge are threatening the Midwest and Great Lakes region with dirty tar sands pipelines and toxic fracking infrastructure.
For Stevens Point, this pipeline is only 25 miles from town and will directly affect all of us who love this community. Come for an evening of empowerment, enlightenment and engaging conversation with speakers who have experienced the horrors of extreme extraction but remain strong in the face of these tragedies.
But communities across the Midwest are coming together to protect our water and stop this climate catastrophe.
The Enbridge Tar Sands Resistance Tour is traveling from Michigan to Minnesota to build the resistance across the Midwest, and on April 22nd (Earth Day!) they are coming to Stevens Point!
We'll hear from community leaders about the threat Enbridge and tar sands poses to our communities, and we’ll strategize and make action plans for how to stop it.
