Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline DAPL

DAPL is still operating illegally. Help shut it down for good Thursday.

For years, we’ve fought to stop and shut down the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).

Pope Francis has written another good and timely encyclical calling the catholic faithful and all people of good moral conscience to action on climate change.

Leading in the wrong direction: Tell President President Biden to declare climate an emergency & stop all new fossil fuels

It’s the most oil we’ve exported, ever, since the crude oil export ban was lifted in 2015. Coincidentally (or not), ExxonMobil announced it is acquiring a major rival …
