Artful Activism: Stop the Keystone XL Pipeline!

  • Wildflower Church: A Unitarian Universalist Congregation - Austin, TX 1314 East Oltorf Street Austin, TX, 78704 United States (map)

Chances are you've heard of the proposed carbon-rich tar sands pipeline, Keystone XL. 

Nebraska is the LAST state that hasn't authorized KXL's current route, so they are uniquely positioned to prevent its construction. 
350 Austin is supporting the efforts of Bold Nebraska to stop KXL. Bold Nebraska is a non-profit coalition of farmers, Tribal Nations, ranchers, and citizens seeking to stop KXL and promote renewables.

On August 6th, marchers are gathering in Lincoln to protest KXL, and hearings about KXL are scheduled on August 7th-11th. Ultimately, a commission of 5 elected officials in Nebraska must make this huge decision by November. 

We will voice our support and spread awareness about the Bold Nebraskamovement, encourage folks to use art to speak out against KXL, and ultimately help put pressure on the commission members to do the right thing and say no to the destructive pipeline.
