From the Inbox - No tar sands oil in our backyard

Tell President Obama to block the Keystone XL
Take Action

Dear Supporter,

What would you do if an oil company was planning to build a pipeline through your back yard?

For me, that question is a very real one. Four years ago, I discovered survey crews trespassing on my land East Texas, staking out a path for the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

That’s where my journey to stop this pipeline began. Since then I’ve organized other landowners, lobbied lawmakers and petitioned banks to halt financing for Keystone XL, and now I’m hitting the road.

Follow the Stop The Pipeline Tour from August 20-September 3, as fellow landowners and I wind along the proposed pipeline route to share our story and the potential effects of Keystone XL.

The Stop The Pipeline Tour will take us to meet with concerned citizens, debate TransCanada face-to-face, visit the Kalamazoo oil spill site, and educate the public before heading east to Washington D.C. for the massive Tar Sands Action with Bill McKibben, Danny Glover, Mark Ruffalo, Naomi Klein, Clayton Thomas-Muller, students, scientists, climate activists and more.

We are standing up to defend our rights and oppose this dangerous pipeline. We want water that’s safe to drink, land that’s fit for our families, and a way of life free from the threats and harassment from corporate oil thugs.

Please stand with us! If you can’t join us in D.C., sign and share this petition telling President Obama to block the Keystone XL.

Within the next four months, the U.S. State Department and President Obama will decide whether to approve the Keystone XL pipeline that would pump nearly one million barrels of toxic tar sands oil per day through pristine rural landscape that I, and thousands more, call home.

Help us protect our home. The struggle we face is one that all of us must win, as oil and natural gas companies get more desperate for product by the day and turn their sites on the next unsuspecting community.
