RIGHT NOW WE’RE ASKING LOCAL GROUPS AND ACTIVISTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY TO “HOST” VIGILS IN AS MANY LOCATIONS AS POSSIBLE (or RSVP to attend if there’s already one near you.)
What: Tell President Obama to reject Keystone XL
Where: Your community
When: Monday, February 3, at 6 pm.
Hosting an action is easy. We’ll invite others to your action, and make sure you have everything you need to make it a success. Even just a handful of people coming together will send a powerful message.
Our event tool will even suggest a location in many cities, or you can pick any public place you like. Just post your action on the event page, invite people in your network, go to the action a few minutes early, and bring some signs and candles if you can. Then send us a photo of the action afterward so we can share it with the world.
Please sign up now to host an action in your community on MONDAY evening.
Thousands of people speaking out in hundreds of communities around the country is just the message we need to put the president on notice that we’re going to hold him to his commitment to take action on climate, and reject the Keystone XL pipeline.
Thanks for helping to make sure your community can speak out against Keystone XL at this important moment.
