On Saturday, July 19, over 70 Nebraskans joined up with the Great March for Climate Action — a 3,000-mile cross-country trek on foot from L.A. to D.C. to raise awareness about climate change — as the marchers paid a visit to the renewable energy-powered barn built by Bold Nebraska and volunteers on land in the path of the Keystone XL pipeline.
Thursday, July 24: The marchers will arrive in Lincoln to help deliver a Bold Nebraska petition calling on Gov. Heineman to compel Big Oil to publicly disclose details on the contents of explosive oil train cars and the toxic contents of pipelines running through our state. We will meet at 5:00 PM on Thursday at the Governor’s Mansion (1425 H St., Lincoln, NE 68508). The event will also feature speeches, and a corn-on-the-cob grill to welcome the Climate Marchers to Lincoln.
Sign up below to join the marchers in Lincoln to deliver the petition to Gov. Heineman:
