There are 2 central components of our Call to Action as part of #sNoLine3: There’s what you can do ON the slopes, and what you can do OFF ’em.
1. If you haven’t yet checked out the Ride & Rep #sNoLine3 section of this site, that’s where you’ll find ways to engage slopeside.
2. Off the slopes, #sNoLine3 is about getting you involved with the larger network of humans working to stop the Line 3 pipeline and take immediate steps towards addressing the climate crisis.
Immediate Calls to Action inside the Broader #StopLine3 Movement
Contact the Office of Gov. Tim Walz & Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan (ongoing)
This is one of the most simple ways your stance can go on record regarding this project, which will in many ways come down to the Walz administration. Calling their office will most likely bring you to a voicemail – just tell them your name, where you are from, and that you want them to Stop Line 3.
Sign MN350.org’s Line 3 “Pledge of Resistance” (ongoing)
In the spring of 2018 as things were heating up at the Public Utilities Commission in downtown St. Paul, MN350 launched their “Pledge of Resistance”, a growing list of concerned citizens from Minnesota and beyond calling on our State to say “NO” to Line 3. In filling out the pledge online, there are 3 options at the bottom that you can either check, or leave empty. If you can host an event to raise awareness about #StopLine3, check that box. If you are willing to engage in Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA) and are willing to risk the chance of being arrested in doing so, check that box. If you are willing to SUPPORT a NVDA but not willing to risk the chance of being arrested in doing so, check that box.
It is our opinion that if you’d like to be on the list of people that get the word when there are major developments on Line 3 and “actions” going down, take the pledge!
Submit a Written Comment to the Army Corps of Engineers (by Feb. 21, 2019) The Army Corps of Engineers (COE) has regulatory authority under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and under Sections 10 and 14 of the Rivers and Harbors Act. The COE regulates placement of fill material in wetlands and other waters, and works with structures in navigable waters. The COE does not regulate the overall construction or operation of pipelines, nor does it regulate the siting of any type of pipeline or any substance being transported within a pipeline. That said, Line 3’s Replacement Route crosses several navigable waterways, including underneath the Mississippi River in three separate locations. By popular demand, the COE has opened up and recently extended a period of public comment regarding Line 3 – submit a comment that includes your concerns about Line 3.

There’s no better excuse to throw a house party than for a good cause. MN350.org has created awesome little kits to make the organizing component of this super easy, all you need to do is invite your friends, family, neighbors, classmates and/or whomever you think might join the fight!
Reach out to MN350 and tell them you’d like to host a StopLine3 House Party!
Sign the MN Can’t Wait Petition (ongoing)
The MN Can’t Wait Coalition is comprised of several youth-led campaigns for climate action. Their petition calls for three things from our Minnesota State Government: No New Fossil Fuel Projects, to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and for a Minnesota “Green New Deal.” Deny Line 3 is one of the central components of their “No New Fossil Fuel Projects” demand so… sign the petition, especially if you are a young one interested in being part of your generation’s climate movement!
