We will explore all legal avenues to stop this pipeline from ever being built and endangering our communities and climate,” said Jackie Prange, senior attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Mark Hefflinger, communications director for Bold Alliance: “Tribal Nations will fight in the courts, despite ignoring our voices and environmental laws in favor of the Trump's attempt to fast-track an export pipeline that threatens our land, water and climate.
