On May 12, 2018, we will be walking the path of the tar sands pipelines through Hammond and East Chicago.  We will be bringing water to the residents of East Chicago who have been affected by the lead crisis.

This is the second part of a walk which began on September 30, 2017, when we walked the path of the Enbridge Line 6 tar sands pipeline as it passes through Northwest Indiana, near schools, homes, waterways and nature preserves. It was a fun, family friendly event which raised awareness about the existence of tar sands pipelines in NWI communities and showed support for a just transition to a renewable energy economy.
