Thank 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!

    Governor Whitmer,

    Northern Michiganders appreciate your bold action on your order to shut down Line 5. We met several weeks ago at Dan O’Neil’s house in Traverse City, as I said then I appreciate your continued bravery in speaking out on issues that affect the citizens of Michigan in spite of threats and plots to do you harm.

    Gretchen (as you said another Gretchen and one that supports your wholeheartedly! ) Iorio

    Chi Miigwetch, as the native Anishinaabeg people of the Upper Peninsula where I live, would say! Thank you! This means more than we will ever know! Thank you for representing the people of Michigan- especially those whose voices are not often heard. We will remember this!
