Michigan stands at one of the most important environmental moments in its history. The choice involves the Line 5 oil pipeline, which each day pumps 23 million gallons of oil through the waters of the Mackinac Straits. The pipeline presents a tremendous threat to our economy and environment. Our choice today is between continuing to operate the pipeline as is, redirecting it through a new tunnel, or shutting the pipeline down, leading the charge to a clean energy economy. 

Past donations have helped us lead the charge to shut down Line 5 since 2013, and have made a tremendous impact. The issue has gone from being invisible to ranking as one of the state’s top environmental issues and a decider of elections.

Your donation today will also …

  • Grow the influence of our premier Michigan Clean Energy Conference
  • Spread the 100% Clean Energy commitment to far more towns.
  • Elevate the influence of the Great Lakes Business Network, a group of environmentally focused business leaders we co-founded.
  • Expand our SolaRISE crowdsource funding program that helps nonprofits purchase clean energy.

Donate and lead the charge to a brighter, healthier, and safer clean energy future, and a Mackinac Straits free from the threat of a devastating oil spill!
