Stop The Byhalia Pipeline!
Tell the Biden Administration: Don’t turn Memphis into Flint 2.0!
Access to safe water is a human right. But that right is threatened by our fossil fuel addiction.
Right now, Valero Energy Corp. and Plains All American Pipeline are working to build the Byhalia Connection Pipeline which will cut directly through the predominantly Black South Memphis and threaten the Memphis Sand Aquifer, which provides clean and safe drinking water to residents around Memphis, TN.
The pipeline’s proposed route runs through several African American communities in Southwest Memphis, including one known as Boxtown, a historic community already burdened by dozens of industrial facilities.
A pipeline through Black Memphis is an assault not just on the environment, but on Black communities everywhere.
The Biden-Harris Administration has the power to revoke the permit that the Byhalia Pipeline is being constructed under—but we need to make our voices heard!
Sign now to call on the Biden-Harris administration to revoke the permit for the Byhalia Connection Pipeline and reevaluate permitting for new oil and gas pipelines across the country.
