March to Give Keystone XL the Boot!
Sunday, August 6, in Lincoln, NE

GET ON THE BUS! Join a shared Midwest bus to Lincoln, Nebraska, to rally against the Keystone XL pipeline and March to Give KXL the Boot!

This will be a great opportunity not only to show solidarity with fellow water protectors in Nebraska, but also to network with fellow Midwest activists, share skills and ideas, and build a more cohesive movement against oil pipelines like Enbridge here in Wisconsin.

WHAT: March to Give Keystone XL the Boot!
WHEN: Sunday, August 6, Pipeline Fighters’ Summit 10am – 2pm, March & Rally 3-5:30 pm
WHERE: Summit location TBD; rally at Nebraska State Capitol, Lincoln, NE
BUS STOPS: Milwaukee, Madison, Rockford, Davenport, & Altoona

REGISTRATION FOR PIPELINE FIGHTERS SUMMIT: http://tinyurl.com/y8lm8gpr

Nebraska’s Public Service Commission has the ability to stop the Keystone XL pipeline ahead of their vote this fall, and we need to show them that we stand with Nebraska against this dirty and dangerous project.

We’re marching in solidarity with hundreds of Nebraskans, along with Water Protectors and dirty fuels Pipeline Fighters from near and far, ahead of a weeklong set of Keystone XL intervenor hearings at the Nebraska Public Service Commission. We need you there with us to send the message that Keystone XL is a threat to our land, water, and climate, and is not in the public interest.

The bus will start in Milwaukee in the late evening on Saturday, August 5, and make stops along the way to arrive Sunday morning in time for the Pipeline Fighters Summit – a regional skillshare with coalition partners across the Midwest to foster conversation and collaboration that will strengthen our local campaign work. Register for the Pipeline Fighters Summit at http://tinyurl.com/y8lm8gpr

For Wisconsin folks, this will be an overnight trip leaving late Saturday evening and getting back early Monday morning, so we’ll be sleeping on the bus both ways. Lunch on Sunday will be provided. The Sierra Club is subsidizing the bus cost, so tickets will cost only $15, plus the Eventbrite processing fee. Nobody will be turned away for lack of funds – just let us know if you can only afford a free or half-price ticket. And if you can’t go, consider making a contribution to help others go!

We need to fill the bus with as many passionate marchers as possible to help send our message loud and clear that we won’t stand for dirty fossil fuel projects like Keystone XL!

Tar Sands Campaign

The Tar Sands Campaign is fighting Enbridge tar sands pipelines in Wisconsin. Our aims are to block expansion of Line 61 and to halt plans for an adjacent Line 66. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and affected community members.

Divestment Campaign

2016 was the hottest year on record. The Divestment Team focuses on convincing institutions that investments in fossil fuel are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. Banks are our current focus since without their support, dirty pipeline projects can't get funded.

Community Energy Campaign

The Community Energy Team is focused on taking action on and responsibility for our own fossil fuel use. We work to create and change policies that impact our energy use and nurture a culture of reducing energy use and using clean, renewable energy to reduce our carbon footprint.
