Pulling Together to Stop Enbridge
Sierra Club BC, in partnership with RAVEN Trust and northern communities, have launched a new campaign in the fight against Enbridge.
Pull Together is a rallying call for people across B.C. to join forces in support of First Nations legal challenges against the pipeline.
In light of the recent declaration of Tsilhqot’in title by the Supreme Court of Canada, it’s clear that First Nations can stop Northern Gateway in the courts.
The Pull Together campaign encourages individuals and groups to support these legal challenges by hosting fundraisers in their communities.
Sierra Club BC offers training, support and a toolkit of resources to individuals and community groups organizing community fundraising events.
Funds raised will be distributed to the involved First Nations through RAVEN Trust, a Victoria-based legal defence fund.
Community groups in Terrace and Smithers have already raised about $3,000 and have issued a challenge to people and communities around the province to match or beat their contributions. From Prince George to Haida Gwaii, communities are already pulling together to support First Nations going to court to stop Enbridge.
Do you think you might be ready to try your hand at hosting or organizing an event?
It could be something as simple as a pancake breakfast or a film night with friends, or as big as a community dance or speaking event. We have a toolkit of resources available to help you plan a successful event and are available with tips and encouragement along the way.
We will help you share your story and connect with other individuals and communities who are also stepping up to the challenge.
Every little bit helps. Whether your fundraiser raises $50 or $5,000, your impact will be multiplied and amplified by the contributions of others.
Pull Together is not just about raising money, it's about building strong connections within communities and between communities.
Pull Together recognizes that when it comes to fighting climate change and moving away from fossil fuel dependence, we are all in this together.
By stopping Northern Gateway, we can build the type of future we want in British Columbia—one that moves away from fossil fuels and toward renewable, clean energy and green jobs.
If we pull together, we can stop Northern Gateway from ever getting built!
