The Sierra Club has an amazing opportunity for you all! The Sierra Club Michigan Chapter is apart of the Oil and Water Don't Mix Campaign. A campaign of grassroots, individuals. and nonprofits across the state dedicated entirely to shutting down Line 5. On April 23rd from 6pm-8pm, OWDM will be hosting House Parties across the state to train new volunteers and activists to gear up for a Summer of Action!
April 23rd 2018 marks the 65th anniversary of Enbridge’s easement that allows them to operate Line 5. 65 years of this pipeline remaining as a threat to the Great Lakes is long enough; we need your help to organize a Summer of Action on Line 5 that will compel our elected leaders to do their duty and decommission this dangerous pipeline.
On Monday, April 23rd, we will be having a series of Retire Line 5 house parties across Michigan, where volunteers will gather, hear more about what Oil and Water Don’t Mix is planning for the summer, and take crucial next steps to ensure that the choices we make in 2018 end in Line 5 being decommissioned. Can you host a public party for activists in your area on Monday April 23rd? Or would you like to host a private party for your friends, neighbors, and family?
Hosting a retirement party is very simple; all you need is a space for people to meet which could be your home, a community center, or any other willing venue, WiFi access, and a computer with speakers. We will provide you with sign in sheets, an agenda for the party, a brief training/Q&A session, lots of information, and all of our parties around the state will be digitally connected. You will have the full support of Oil and Water Don't Mix and the Sierra Club. We will even help other supporters in your area.
Make no mistake; 2018 is the critical year in the fight to shut down Line 5. Hosting a retirement party is a great way for you to increase your impact on this campaign, and make a difference for our Great Lakes. Are you ready to start making an impact on Line 5 in your community? We will be in touch shortly to help you start planning!
