The Line 3 Expansion is a massive tar sands oil pipeline under construction through the heart of Northern Minnesota. If completed, it would cross a hundred waterways, including the headwaters of the Mississippi River. It would also pass near the border of multiple Native nations and across hundreds of miles of treaty-protected land, which those communities depend on for drinking water and wild rice gathering. In this webinar, we will learn more about Line 3 and what faith communities can do to stop it. Featured speakers will include:

  • Rev. Jim Bear Jacobs, Minnesota Council of Churches and Healing Minnesota Stories
  • Nina Berguland, Youth Council and Indigenous Council for Earth Guardians
  • Joe Meinholz, Pipeline Resistance Coordinator for Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light

Even if you cannot make the scheduled time, still sign-up, and we will send you a recording.

This monthly installment of Creation Justice Webinars is co-hosted by the Rev. Dr. Brooks Berndt who serves as the Minister of Environmental Justice for the United Church of Christ and the Rev. Michael Malcom who serves as the Executive Director for Alabama Interfaith Power & Light and the People’s Justice Council
