With a new president in the White House, this is the moment for social-justice Christians to defend God's good creation and reclaim our faith from the religious right's climate denial.
We can start by supporting Indigenous organizers in their fight against northern Minnesota's Line 3 tar sands pipeline.
Enbridge, which is to blame for 73 pipeline spills since 2002, has already begun construction on the dirty fossil-fuel infrastructure, violating Anishinaabe treaty rights and threatening sacred water. The pipeline also threatens the global climate, spewing out emissions equal to Keystone XL, the Dakota Access pipeline, or 50 coal plants.
The bad news is that Line 3 has the support of Minnesota's Democratic governor, Tim Walz. The good news is that Native leaders, local organizers, and a powerful faith coalition have slowed the project, creating space for Joe Biden to intervene.
Climate change is a moral crisis that impacts everything the Gospel calls us to fight for -- public health, jobs, poverty, racism, immigration, and more. Let's show President Biden that Christians and other people of faith support environmental justice for the Anishinaabe, and call on him to immediately overturn Donald Trump's approval of Line 3.
