Stop the Line 3 pipeline

Hi there,

I just got off the phone with renowned environmental activist Winona La Duke. Canadian company Enbridge has begun construction of the dirty Line 3 tar sands oil pipeline stretching from Alberta to Wisconsin – and Winona and her allies have asked for our help to stop it.

Construction may be underway, but opposition is stronger than ever too. Last week, 22 water protectors were arrested for resisting construction.

Joe Biden has the power to review the permits granted by Trump and can still halt construction on this destructive pipeline. But he won’t do it without an unprecedented wave of public pressure.

Will you add your voice to the powerful movement rising up against Line 3 and sign the petition calling on Biden to stop pipeline construction?


If constructed, this pipeline would carry 760,000 barrels of tar sands oil from Canada every, single, day – using a three-foot-wide pipe as big as Keystone XL. This would be devastating to our climate, threaten the Mississippi River,... and violate treaty rights.

Line 3 would cross more than 200 bodies of water, including the Mississippi River and wild rice beds sacred to the Anishinaabe people that should be protected under treaties. The pipeline would also have the climate impact of 50 new coal plants, causing more than $287 billion in climate damages to our communities around the world.

With pipelines like this, it’s not a question of if they’ll have a spill, but when – and tar sands oil is near impossible to clean up. Pipeline owner Enbridge has a terrible track record of devastating pipeline spills – responsible for more than 800 separate incidents between 1999 and 2010.

We can’t let Biden recognize the implications of Keystone XL on our climate and communities and ignore the consequences of Line 3. But we need to get that message across loud and clear.

Friend, please join me and our allies and sign the petition calling on Biden and other federal officials to do everything in their power to stop Line 3 construction.

Stopping pipelines like Line 3 is exactly the kind of challenge that was created to take on. We know that by preventing tar sands expansion, we can pave the way for large-scale, transformative change towards a renewable energy future. And it's working – over the past decade, Stand has joined forces with frontline communities and allied organizations to stop dozens of pipeline and oil train projects up and down the Pacific coast, including a previous Enbridge nightmare – the Northern Gateway pipeline.

We’re so glad you’re part of the Stand online community that helped make these wins happen. Our team is fewer than 50 people, but this community is nearly 500,000 people strong and growing – and together, we're using our collective power to fight climate change, protect wild spaces, stand with impacted communities, and say no to new fossil fuels.

Climate science, treaty rights, and economics clearly show that the Line 3 pipeline would harm sacred sites and push our climate further into crisis. Now it’s time for Biden to listen to the majority across North America who oppose this dirty pipeline and reject tar sands altogether.

In solidarity,
