It is time to take action on the Special Session. Starting on Halloween, we ask that you go to your state senator’s home or office. We do not want any treats or tricks, all we want is their vote to re-route the pipeline. Then, on Nov. 4th we will gather as citizens and landowners to learn about the special session process and come up with a clear list of expectations for common sense oil pipeline regulations.
Trick or Vote
There’s one day every year where people expect a knock on their door: Halloween. It’s an opportunity we don’t want to waste since the Pipeline Special Session starts the next day. Some of you, especially in rural districts, are very familiar with your state senators and know where they live. That’s why we’re asking bold pipeline fighters to knock on their state senator’s door and ask not for candy but that they vote to reroute the pipe.

If you’re in Lincoln, join us at the State Capitol from noon-1pm to visit state senators’ offices. Meet us at the information desk.
This special session is not the time to give it the old college try. We know that the pipeline CAN be rerouted, it is only a question of if our elected officials have the guts to do it.
Citizen Special Session
State Capitol–Warner Chamber
Ever since Governor Heineman announced he was calling a pipeline special session, we’ve been inundated with questions from pipeline fighters and Sandhills lovers. We want to answer all your questions.
Join us on November 4th at the State Capitol for a seminar where we’ll explain the ins-and-outs of a special session and craft a plan of action. We will also review legal memos and come with a list of 5 expectation citizens have of state senators. You’ll also have the chance to visit with your state senator.
If you can’t make it in person, we’ll be streaming our event on Bold’s site. We will also be creating a resource page for the special session, so keep your eye to our website for that info page.
