The Oil & Water Don't Mix campaign is a group of non-profit organizations and concerned citizens that have come together under a common goal: To Shut Down the Flow of Oil in the Great Lakes. We need your financial support now so that together we can continue to build the public, political, legal, and regulatory pressure to shut down Enbridge Line 5 before it ruptures into the Straits of Mackinac. Preparing to react to the release of risks and alternatives studies this summer (paid for by Enbridge, by the way) is our next step.

Together, we've already accomplished great things - we have elevated Line 5 in the Straits of Mackinac to become a top environmental issue in Michigan.
Because of this campaign and the pressure we've applied, state and federal lawmakers have passed bills that increase pipeline safety and transparency, lawsuits have been filed, and a state pipeline task force and then an advisory board has been created to study alternatives to this pipeline. Together, we've started the process needed to stop the flow of oil in Line 5 to protect the Great Lakes.
Now, help us to finish it.
We need to increase our capacity with a paid organizer to be ready for the next phase of this campaign and to help the public to comment on the upcoming studies that could forecast the end of the line for Line 5. Your donation, no matter how large or small, will help us to do just that.
Play a part in a success story that will be told for generations to come...
