Line 3 Resistance

In so-called Minnesota, the multi-national corporation Enbridge has plans to replace and expand the Line 3 tar sands oil pipeline, a project which would violate treaty rights of the Anishinaabe people and fuel ecological catastrophe. The Overstory Alliance stands in solidarity with frontline Indigenous leadership resisting the pipeline. We are organizing a research group to inform the strategy of the Overstory Alliance and our allies and educating and training a network of water protectors to join the movement to stop line 3. Together, we’re building the consciousness and capacity to stop this pipeline and protect our future.

Unlearning Courses

The education system we know is outdated and dying – in response, Overstory Alliance is organizing a learning and unlearning program for and by young humans who know they’re missing something in the conventional university system. Free and open-ended, the Unlearning Courses will feature multiple weeks of learning about the world we inhabit, developing practical skills for our lives, and training to become more effective organizers and activists. More info about the Unlearning Semester will be coming shortly.
