Sign up for the historic May 15th Action at the BP Refinery outside of Chicago where we will Break Free from Fossil Fuels! Find out here how to take action –> https://midwest.breakfree2016.org

We’re breaking free from an industry that threads the Great Lakes region with pipelines and puts our communities at risk with refining impacts and petcoke piles. We’re breaking free from business as usual, and we’re taking on Enbridge’s tar sands expansion plans in our region.

Right now, Enbridge’s agenda represents the biggest expansion of tar sands infrastructure in the US including fuels refineries that have long-term impacts on local communities. We can’t afford to let them carry out their plans. We need a just transition away from tar sands to clean energy, and we need you to be a part of it.

We are close to a historic, global shift in our energy system. The way we get there is by action that names those who are responsible for climate change, takes power back for the people, and forces governments to act.
