Join us in raising funds to support the Big Bend Water Protectors Lori Glover, Benjamin Franklin, and Anna Kruger (The Big Bend 3). 

Extreme hurricanes of climate change are decimating U.S. coastlines, daily we breathe toxic smog from Frack-zones and, yet, our state and federal government refused to acknowledge the demands of communities to hold corporations like Energy Transfer Partners accountable. Three brave citizens stood in their way. Lori Glover, Benjamin Franklin Craft-Rendon, and Anna Kruger of Two Rivers Camp cared enough to peacefully protest the construction of the billionaire owned Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) Trans-Pecos Pipeline in Presidio County. The same ruthless corporation responsible for indigenous, environmental, and human rights violations against Standing Rock incurred when constructing the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).

The Big Bend 3 were handcuffed, thrown in jail, and given harsh criminal felony charges for exercising their 1st Amendment rights and protecting the Big Bend community from water, land, and air pollution and the abuses of eminent domain.

Now they face an unjust justice system and all the legal expense that comes with it.
