Help Stop the Back Forty Mine!

WISDOM stands with the Menominee Tribe to stop the Back 40 Mine.  The proposed mine would desecrate sacred sites, and would endanger the Menominee River.  The land that is most sacred to the Menominee Tribe is threatened with desecration. Plans are underway to turn the pristine forest into a gaping, open pit mine that would threaten to contaminate land and rivers in Michigan and Wisconsin.

We joined more than 300 “water protectors” who came to pray, to march and to pledge solidarity with each other, with the water, the land, and creation.

All who are concerned about respect for all faith traditions and all who care about our fragile environment are invited to get involved in this important struggle. Contact us:
