Nurturing the water, soil, and air that life depends on means we must move away from the extractive economic practices that define our current corporate-controlled economy. In 2019, Land Stewardship Project members came together to craft a bold “Vision For the Future,” in which we collectively committed to shift farming practices so they restore life and carbon to our soil and work to decrease our communities’ reliance on fossil fuels.
We know that we can’t steward the land, care for our communities, support future generations, or mitigate the climate crisis by mining the life of our soil using energy extracted from carbon deposited millennia ago. We simply cannot continue extreme energy extraction and the infrastructure that facilitates it, such as frac sand mines and cross-country pipelines.
That’s why Land Stewardship Project members have stood in unity with rural, Indigenous, and environmental organizations in the fight to stop the Line 3 Pipeline.
This week, Governor Tim Walz and the Commissioner of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), Laura Bishop, will be making their final decision on a critical Line 3 permit, and your voice is needed.
Can you take just two minutes to call the Governor and MPCA Commissioner today? In the midst of compounding climate, economic, and public health crises, we need our state leaders to have the courage to move beyond oil and invest in a just transition to a clean energy economy where all people thrive.
Corporate interests are pushing hard to build Line 3. If we don’t speak up now, the pipeline could be built. We need to stand together for rural and Indigenous communities, future generations, and our soil, water, air, and climate.
Please, click here to urge Governor Walz and MPCA Commissioner Laura Bishop to deny the final permit for the Line 3 pipeline and, instead, invest in a just transition to a clean energy economy. Their decision is expected this week, so it is urgent that you take action now.
