MN350 Teams

Corporate Accountability Team16716348_224920621248611_7318895038623648009_o

The Corporate Accountability team is working locally with a coalition of racial and economic justice organizations, Minnesotans for a Fair Economy (MFE), and with divestment groups nationally on a campaign targeting U.S. Bank.

We have been calling on U.S. Bank to stop enabling the extreme fossil fuel industry, such as Enbridge Energy’s tar sands oil pipelines, and instead invest in a clean energy economy that is accessible to low-income communities.

In response, U.S. Bank took a step back from financing oil and gas pipelines in April, 2017, the first major bank in the country to do so! We applaud this step, and will continue to encourage U.S. Bank to fully divest from pipelines and the fossil fuel industry.

Next meeting: Thursday, June 8, 6:30-8:30 PM at 2104 Stevens Ave S. in Minneapolis. Contact Kate@MN350.org for more information.

Pipeline Resistance Team

The MN350 Pipeline Resistance Team is a group of very engaged volunteers, all whom are committed to keeping tar sands crude oil in the ground.  Click here to learn more about tar sands and MN350′s tar sands work.Leave It In The Ground / Climate Justice Now flags

The MN350 Pipeline Resistance Team has effectively supported our legal challenge to Enbridge; increased public awareness about the significant impact that extracting and burning Tar Sands will have on climate change as well as on our environment; and engaged individuals and communities to join in this collective effort to stop the extraction of this dirty fossil fuel. The Pipeline Resistance team has been heavily involved in the resistance against the Dakota Access Pipeline, and was pivotal in the shutting down of the Sandpiper pipeline as well.

The Pipeline Resistance Team meets every two weeks on Thursday evenings at 6:30pm at the MN350 office to plan and take action.  Please check the calendar as meetings are occasionally changed.  There are always more opportunities than there are volunteers, so please join us in taking action against both the expansion of Tar Sands AND the extreme extraction of any fossil fuel.  Together, we can slow down and stop the extraction of Tar Sands, all while creating the livable future we desire for ourselves and generations to come.

The next team meeting will be on Thursday June 1st  6:30-8:30 PM at 2104 Stevens Ave S Mpls 55404. Contact Andy@MN350.org or Kathy@mn350.org for more info!
