Come to Calder Plaza on July 26th to learn about Enbridge’s Line 5, the 64 year old twin oil pipelines running underneath the Straits of Mackinac that were only projected to have a 50 year lifetime, and yet they still have oil flowing through them. Knowledgeable speakers will share information about this oil line, why it is so dangerous for our ecosystem and economy, and what you can do to help. Speakers include:

💧Stephanie Mabie, founder of Kent County Water Conservation
💦Robert Vankirk, 77th District Congressional Candidate
💧Desmond Berry, Natural Resources Department Lead for the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians
💦Kevin Gilbert, Creator/Owner of Spark The Change
💧Lee Sprague, Tribal Leader of the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians
💦TJ Kimball, Senate Candidate for the 29th District

Please bring signs and friends to help raise awareness of this threat to the Great Lakes!

Our Kitchen Table is an active supporter of this campaign and is working with other local organizations to have the City of Grand Rapids pass a resolution asking that Line 5 be removed.
