Parshall, ND

“We have had an outmigration of people who can now afford to buy homes in Bismarck, South Dakota, Arizona, or New Mexico. Most left because of the negative impacts of the oil industry on their land and their way of life. They represent people who our communities can least afford to lose – the people who drive ambulances, teach in our schools, worked in our stores and businesses, our next-door neighbors. But there are others who cannot move, or who do not wish to leave the land of their birth. So our communities are harmed in other ways, besides the visible signs and impacts of the large-scale oil industry.”
