EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS

Stop the Pipeline (STP) is a grassroots organization that led the fight to stop the Constitution Pipeline. We won a great victory in April 2016 when the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) denied a required water quality certification. The DEC’s denial was upheld in court proceedings, but in late August 2019, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued an order that says the DEC had to act on a prior application. This means our success is now in jeopardy. The pipeline must be stopped again. This time FERC’s decision can only be reversed by a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Since its formation in June 2012, STP has been guided by Anne Marie Garti, who has provided free strategic advice, as well as free legal services through the Pace Environmental Litigation Clinic. Taking the fight to the Court of Appeals requires a legal campaign. STP must now raise a minimum of $55,000 to fund the appeals process to stop the pipeline from being built.

We need your help!
