ACTION: Host your own #NoKXL House Party! Sign up on the form below. 

To gear up for the upcoming public hearings and meetings on Keystone XL (May 3rd in York; Aug. 7-11 in Lincoln), we’re launching a nationwide #NoKXL House Party campaign.

Everyone needs to get familiar with all the issues surrounding KXL, and what particular aspects the Nebraska Public Service Commission will be focusing on in its review of TransCanada’s permit application. During the house parties, guests will be composing handwritten #NoKXL letters to mail to PSC commissioners, and #NoKXL letters to the editor of their local newspapers.

Host a “party” with your friends (or, we’ll post your event on our Facebook if you’re cool with other Bold supporters showing up — contact us with the details). It could be at your house, in a coffeeshop, in the park, anyplace works.

You don’t need to provide food (or booze), but depending on the crowd it may sweeten the deal. Make it a potluck! 🙂

Bold created a #NoKXL House Party Toolkit that includes:

  • A downloadable #NoKXL Fact Sheet you can print out copies of for guests to read to help write their letters to the Public Service Commission
  • Cool #NoKXL signs/posters by Justin Kemerling that you can stick up or put out on the table
  • #NoKXL YouTube videos you could screen for guests on your laptop (or TV, if you can rig that up).
  • A sign-in sheet so people can be sure to be added to Bold’s email list, and so that Bold can track how many letters #NoKXL have been submitted to the PSC.
  • As an added bonus, the party will help get you familiar with all of the concerns that Nebraskans have about Keystone XL’s threat to our land, water and climate, so you’re ready to when it comes time to testify at KXL public hearings in Nebraska Aug. 7-11 in Lincoln, and public meeting May 3rd in York.
