Thank You Governor WhitmerGovernor Whitmer, along with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Attorney General Dana Nessel, have revoked the easement that allowed Enbridge to operate Line 5 in the Great Lakes. This is historic. If ultimately successful, this would be the first time an operating pipeline has ever been shut down.

It is rare that a politician has the guts to stand up to the most powerful industry on the planet. Please join us in thanking Governor Gretchen Whitmer for taking a politically risky stance on behalf of all Michiganders, and for doing what must be done to protect future generations.

We'll send your name and comments as a thank you card.

Governor Whitmer:

Thank you so much for your audacious action for the Great Lakes, the climate, and the people of Michigan. Thank you for applying public trust law, listening to the science of climate change, and for hearing the thousands of dedicated citizens and organizations that worked to elevate this issue in a way that will protect our environment for generations to come.

Thank you for taking the courageous steps to shut down Line 5!

    This summer, my family and I were camping at Wilderness State Park when we witnessed a Jiimaan out on the water of Big Stone Bay. Later, we read that they had found a stone circle underneath the water. The beauty of the bay, the passion for the human and non-human life it supports, and the intelligent stewardship of the Three Fires was evident and alive that day. Thank you for protecting invaluable life and culture, as well working to combat climate change, by your actions. I am proud and excited to share this with my two children.

    Thank you – Promises made, promises kept! This is probably the most important thing you can do to protect the people of Michigan now and in the future. A great legacy for “that woman from Michigan”. Proud to be a supporter!
