Line 3 Legal Defense Fund Funding Request Form
The Line 3 Legal Defense Fund is here to support water protectors who have risked arrest in the fight against Line 3. Please request funds from us if you have spent your own money as you move through the court process. We will support things like hotel, transportation, or gas reimbursements for traveling to court, organizing expenses, or other legal fees associated with your case. Currently, we are NOT paying for attorneys fees - your attorney should apply for funding via the Center for Protest Law and Litigation. Please reach out with any questions or concerns - either we can help you, or we can point you in the right direction. You can reach us at

Update 12/6/22: There are updated guidelines below on the amount of money we can provide per category, per in-person hearing. As we are a volunteer-run grassroots organization with limited capacity, and with the fight against Line 3 no longer receiving broad attention, we want to be realistic about our ability to fundraise long-term. We encourage you to think carefully about whether you have access to resources outside of the Legal Fund, and we ask that if you do have access to other means, that you tap those sources first. We want to make sure we can support you all. We also want to be clear on the kind of support we are equipped to offer in order to help you make informed decisions about your case.
