Join us on the capitol steps, opening day of our state legislature, to remind State Senators and Governor Heineman that it is their duty to protect our land and water from the risky TransCanada pipeline.
The rally is scheduled for Jan. 5th, noon, at the state capitol on the West side under the statue of President Lincoln.
