Send a Pipeline Fighter postcard to leaders in Washington, DC!
While we were out building a wind and solar-powered barn directly in the path of the Keystone XL export pipeline in the summer of 2013, volunteers and art students from Nebraska Wesleyan University designed #NoKXL billboards for Nebraska farmers and ranchers to place on their land. Bold’s Mary Anne Andrei has taken some absolutely beautiful photos of the landowners and their new outdoors artwork on their land that we are all fighting to protect. (Click on each photo in the slideshow above to find out more about the Nebraskan(s) pictured.)
ACTION: We turned all the photographs into postcards so that you can help bring these Nebraskans’ stories, as well as your own #NoKXL message, to key opinion leaders and decision makers in the Keystone XL pipeline approval process.
DONATE: For a $10 donation to Bold Nebraska, we’ll send you 4 pre-addressed postcards. Just add your own personal message and a stamp, and drop them in the mail to D.C. (Postcards will be assigned randomly; each order includes four postcards addressed to two different recipients.) If you’d like to order more than one set of 4 postcards, please enter another amount in multiples of $10 (e.g. $20, $30… $100)
Click “Donate” now to give $10 and receive four
Who are the recipients of the postcards?
- President Barack Obama & First Lady Michelle Obama
- The President still has the final word on Keystone XL. Tell him to keep his promise to stand with citizens to protect our land, water and climate. Ask Michelle Obama to bring the girls to Nebraska to see the wildlife (like the Sandhill Cranes) that is at risk with this pipeline.
- Sec. John Kerry
- Sec. Kerry is a key decision maker and a long-time climate champion. Show him support, and invite him to visit Nebraska to hear our concerns and see the pipeline still crosses the Sandhills, Ogallala Aquifer and other key bodies of water like the Platte River.
Below is a sampling of the 35 postcard images. See them all on Flickr.
Many thanks to photographer Mary Anne Andrei, postcard designer Justin Kemerling, all of the students and volunteers who created the billboards, all the farmers and ranchers hosting billboards on their land, and to all of you standing with us by sending your #NoKXL messages on postcards to Washington.
