What the heck is "Line 5" and why do you care?
If you've listened to local news at all in the last few years, you've heard references to some controversy around "Line 5." Don't be embarrassed if you don't know what the fuss is about. We're all too busy! Here's a chance to join neighbors for local micro-brews and conversation about the damaged 66-year-old pipeline that carries 22.7 million gallons of oil through 645 miles of Michigan, under hundreds of waterways, for export to Canada. Fresh water for 40 million people is at risk, one big reason the League of Women Voters ( is calling for it to be shut down. Terri Wilkerson, the force behind the website, will bring you up to date and answer questions - no matter how basic!
Doors open at 7:00 to give you a chance to grab your brew & snacks. Program begins at 7:30.

Worried about climate change? Wondering how you can make a real difference? Come to the monthly meeting of the Ann Arbor chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby (CCL). CCL is a national, grassroots organization working to enact federal legislation to put a price on CO2. It is the most focused and influential organization working on national climate policy. We are working to build support for the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (, a fair and effective policy to reduce GHG emissions. Our meetings consist of dialing in to a national conference call (featuring different guest speakers each month), followed by local discussion of actions. Newcomers are welcome to come at 12:30 for a brief overview.
