A month has passed since President Obama rejected the permit for the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. The environmental community is putting pen to paper today to tell Capitol Hill that this project must be halted. Help deliver 500,000 messages to Capitol Hill by noon on Tuesday. Urge your Senators to vote NO on any provision that would allow for the the Keystone XL pipeline.
Several environmental organizations will provide a platform or function to deliver notice to your Senators. Here’s a few to check out:
We’re aiming to send half a million messages to the Senate in the next 24 hours. And they’ll all have the same message: back the President and make sure this pipeline doesn’t get built.
This is what movements look like. And we need you to play a big part.
1—Send a message right now to the Senate: act.350.org/sign/kxl/
2—Make sure that everyone else you know does the same thing.
The arguments by now are clear: This pipeline won’t create jobs (that’s why the biggest labor unions in the country support the President). It puts the heartland of the country at risk from spills — the kind of leaks that devastated the Yellowstone and Kalamazoo Rivers in the year past. And after the year with the most weather disasters in the nation’s history, and amidst this weird and out-of-kilter winter, the fight against climate change must start here.
National Resources Defense Council:
Just a month after President Obama rejected a permit for the disastrous Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, the Senate is about to vote on a deal that could green-light construction of the project. The environmental community is mobilizing for an all-out push to deliver 500,000 messages to Capitol Hill by noon on Tuesday. Tell your Senators to vote NO on any provision that would approve the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline!
Friends of the Earth:
We have 24 hours to keep the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline dead.
The Senate could vote as early as Tuesday on a deal that would greenlight construction of the pipeline — overturning President Obama’s rejection of Keystone XL last month.
Help us reach our goal of delivering 500,000 messages demanding that senators reject the Keystone XL pipeline before the vote.
Is your organization collecting messages? Let us know!
