Campaign Teams

Tar Sands

The Tar Sands Team is fighting Enbridge tar sands pipelines in Wisconsin. Our aims are to block expansion of Line 61 and to halt plans for an adjacent Line 66. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and affected community members.

Contact: Phyllis Hasbrouck, [email protected]

Divest & Defund

2016 was the hottest year on record; 2017 was the second-hottest. The Divest & Defund Team focuses on convincing institutions that investments in fossil fuel are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. Banks are our current focus since without their support, dirty pipeline projects can’t get funded.

Contact: Seth Jensen, [email protected]

Community Climate Solutions

Community Climate Solutions focuses on making change across Dane County, at both systems and individual levels. One campaign seeks to help local governments implement urgently needed climate solutions. Another collaborates with other local groups to increase climate action and awareness.

Contact:  Susan Millar,  [email protected]; Kermit Hovey, [email protected]

CAT services encompass website and social media, press releases, letters to the editor and op-eds, radio spots, email blasts, and photography and video. CAT especially needs new members with expertise in video and graphics arts.
