SIGN: Shut TransCanada’s Keystone Down & Investigate Pipeline Integrity

The recent 17,000-gallon tarsands spill from TransCanada's Keystone pipeline in South Dakota — which has now experienced more than 30 leaks in its lifetime of only six years — shows the clear need to shut it down for an immediate review of the entire length of the pipeline's integrity, especially at the other "transition welds" that have now proven to be faulty and prone to leaks.

PETITION: Tell Nebraska AG Doug Peterson—Investigate Exxon’s Climate Fraud

Tell Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson: We demand a Nebraska state investigation into Exxon's climate fraud. A group of 17 State Attorneys General just announced a multi-state effort to "explore working together on key climate change-related initiatives, such as ongoing and potential investigations into whether fossil fuel companies misled investors and the public on the impact of climate change on their businesses." New York, California, Massachusetts, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have now launched investigations into whether Exxon intentionally misled the public for decades about the harmful impacts of climate change and burning fossil fuels. Exxon must be held accountable—we demand that Nebraska Atty. General Doug Peterson launch an investigation now.

PETITION: Tell Ben Sasse & Deb Fischer—Do Your Job!

Tell Nebraska's Senators Ben Sasse and Deb Fischer: Our courts matter — we deserve a full bench on the Supreme Court. We support President Obama's highly respected nominee Merrick Garland for Supreme Court justice. The President has fulfilled his constitutional duty, now it is time for Senators Deb Fischer and Ben Sasse to do theirs. Hold a fair hearing, and then give the President's nominee an "up or down" vote.

SIGN: I support refugees making Nebraska home

Nebraskans are genuinely welcoming people, and we have the means — not to mention a moral obligation — to open our door to families like Shams', who are facing devastation in the Middle East and a stark choice to flee or else die amid the chaos. Stand with us to demand that Gov. Ricketts and Nebraska's representatives in Congress support the admittance of refugees from Syria to Nebraska, so that our great state can continue its tradition of welcoming all to share in "The Good Life," like Shams did.

Tell Gov. Ricketts: Support the Clean Power Plan

We do not want our taxpayer dollars used by Gov. Ricketts and Attorney General Peterson to mount another wrong-headed legal challenge to the Clean Power Plan — a flexible, common-sense plan that will cut carbon pollution and clean up our land, air and water. We demand that the Governor and Attorney General stop fighting for Big Oil and Wyoming coal at the expense of the health of Nebraskans and our land and water.

Support Equality in Nebraska

Sign the ACLU's petition to Nebraska State Senators: Please work to end discrimination and support equality and fairness in Nebraska. Please support policies that value strong families, workplaces free of discrimination, equal access to health care, educational and economic opportunity for all Nebraskans. (Bold Nebraska supports the 2015 "Equality Agenda," a series of bills introduced in the state legislature that aim to add protections for the LGBT community in the workplace and other areas.)
