Health Professionals Against Line 3 National Day of Solidarity Action


Our home is on fire. Even as we struggle to care for our families and communities impacted by climate change, Enbridge is building a new tar sands oil pipeline in Minnesota, Line 3, that will add fuel to this fire. How much fuel? If built, the oil transported by Line 3 will add carbon emissions equal to 50 coal plants to our atmosphere every year it is in operation. 

Line 3 cuts through the heart of the Anishinaabe territory in Minnesota, violating treaty rights, damaging sacred wild rice beds, and threatening the health of Indigenous communities. 

President Biden could stop construction immediately - as  he did with Keystone XL - but so far has chosen not to.

Health professionals in Minnesota have opposed Line 3 for several years in a movement led by Indigenous leaders. They are now calling on us around the country to stand in solidarity with the water protectors. Oregon PSR stands with our colleagues in Minnesota to call on President Biden to revoke the permits and #StopLine3.

Join Oregon PSR for an in-person letter delivery action on August 17th. Sign up to join us on August 17th, and share and amplify your action on social media.

Fully vaccinated people are welcome to attend this outdoor event. Please wear a mask and physically distance.

Health professionals, please consider wearing clothes that identify you as such, like a white coat or scrubs.

If you cannot attend in-person, join us virtually on social media. Post a picture of you on August 17th in your health professional outfit using the hashtags #FossilFree4Health, #StopLine3, and #OurWaterOurHealth.

Supported by Health Professionals for a Healthy Climate (Minnesota-based).

Join and share this event on Facebook.

Find out how you can join activists for on-the-ground actions in Minnesota.

Sign our letter to President Biden encouraging him to stop Line 3.
