Rally Against Keystone and Tar Sands

See a developing update HERE!

It's 2013 all over again…and we need to continue to move - Forward On Climate!

With the release of the final State Department Environmental Impact Statement related to the Keystone XL pipeline (the last one was written by oil lobbyists), the wishes of the people are being ignored. Apparently we need to further insist on attention to our expectations for a safe and sustainable world. 

YOU can join us to do so on Monday evening, February 3rd. Across the country, individuals and groups are coming together for vigils in opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline. We currently have a vigil scheduled in the locations noted below - and will soon report on other events across the state. NOTE: this is moving very quickly - so keep checking back for further updates.

If you have a KXL orange vest from the Washington, DC protests - or any associated mementos (Mr. Obama's campaigns and hope and change and all that!) from the past - bring them!!
