Moving Beyond Dirty Energy

Pipelines are the superhighways for toxic oil spills and carbon emissions. They cut through tribal lands, farm country, and treasured landscapes, threatening our health, water, and livelihoods with every mile. From extraction to emissions, the oil industry prioritizes profits over people.

After years of organizing and keeping the pressure on, President Obama finally rejected the Keystone XL pipeline in November 2015. But the fight against dirty oil is far from over.

Young people across the country are organizing to stop other oil infrastructure—like the Dakota Access Pipeline—and set an economic, cultural, and political precedent that says we can no longer be written off by corporations as a disposable generation.

Stopping pipelines is the first step in building the just, clean energy future we know is possible.

With bold actions, coordinated solidiarity, and local organizing in each of our communities, we're building a movement to stop tar sands, the Bakken oilfields, and all other dangerous forms of oil extraction at the source—and keep all fossil fuels in the ground.

Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline

The fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline has been led by young people, from the Standing Rock Tribe youth who started off the summer by running over 1,200 miles from North Dakota to D.C. to personally deliver over 140,000 petitions to the White House, to the landowners in Iowa risking arrest to stop the pipeline companies from seizing their land. Now, students and young leaders all over the country can carry the fight forward. Check out our comprehensive toolkit for ways you can support Indigenous leaders resisting this illegal pipeline—from taking action on your campus to supporting the front lines in North Dakota.

859 The Dakota Access Pipeline is covered in the filthy fingerprints of half a dozen corporate oil giants, but the biggest and ugliest are those of Enbridge. Enbridge Energy Inc., a Canadian mega-corporation, recently purchased a 28% share in the pipeline from Energy Transfer Partners, making them the largest single financial contributor to the project’s bottom line.

Two years ago I found myself sitting on the bank of the Westfield Creek in Western Massachusetts, staring at the orange super moon while my body shook in sobs. It was the first time I’d let myself truly feel the consequences and despair of a fracked gas pipeline being built in the region where I now live.
