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!

    Your action to shut down the pipeline gives me hope that other politicians out there do remain true to the promises that helped get them elected by not caving to and being influenced by the billion dollar corporations.


    I’m the fourth generation of a Traverse City family, and I have two generations after me who chose to live here. The health of the water directly and indirectly impacts all us. I speak for all my family and so many more of my friends when I say, “Thank you, Governor Whitmer.”


    Sincerely,

    Nancy Potter

    “Shut Down Line 5” is the only political

    sign I’ve had on my lawn for the last 3 years… it’s nice to think that it goes along quite nicely with all my neighbors’ Biden/Harris signs.


    Not that the safety and long-term health of our Great Lakes should be a political issue.
