Join us on Friday, Oct. 30 for a #NOKXL Pumpkin Carving Party!

cia-pumpkinWe’ll be carving 91 pumpkins, to represent the projected 91 spills that would occur over the lifespan of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, and send a message to Pres. Obama that he must reject KXL to protect our land, water and climate.

At our last pumpkin carving party in Lincoln in 2011, we pressed on Gov. Heineman to call a special session to deal with pipeline laws. Two days later, he called the special session. This time, we are hoping Pres. Obama gets the message and finally rejects Keystone XL.
