In addition to canvassing door-to-door all of the people that live along Line 5, we will be organizing a variety of events along the way. We hope to organize public speaking events in many of the townships and cities that we will be passing through where community members can meet with the bikers and collectively share our concerns about the pipeline and action we can take against it. We also be organizing some bigger rallies at important locations of the trip, such as the Marysville kickoff or a protest at the Straits of Mackinac.
