To prevent disaster in their territories, the Coldwater Band, Tsleil-Waututh Nation, Squamish First Nation, and the Stk’emlupsemc te Secwepemc — are legally challenging the federal government. To beat Enbridge, Pull Together raised $600,000 for the legal challenges – and we’re doing it again to beat Kinder Morgan. You can pull together with First Nations to stop Kinder Morgan.
In this video, meet the Nations who are standing strong against Kinder Morgan: Coldwater, Stk’emlupsemc te Secwepemc and Tsleil-Waututh. In solidarity with these strong Indigenous leaders, Pull Together is going to beat Kinder Morgan by unleashing the same creative, kick-ass forces that stopped Enbridge. We urge you to watch and help us share this far and wide, so people who love this planet —wherever they live— hear from these nations and are inspired to get involved.
Will you reach out to your friends, family, and the people you work with to jump in on the awesome wave that is this movement to defend our coast? It’s not about simply stopping Kinder Morgan — although we keep our eyes firmly fixed on that prize. It’s also the poetry of connection: of people and places that leads to a strong and grounded movement for justice that can never be extinguished.
With almost 30 Pull Together events already held, 50 online fundraisers, and 20+ businesses all working hard to fundraise for Indigenous legal challenges to Kinder Morgan, we’ve hit $130,000 of our $500k goal. The momentum is building. Now we need you to unleash YOUR passion and help pump up the volume on Pull Together: the People vs. Kinder Morgan!

Together we can do this.
