Our members of Congress are back in Nebraska for five weeks of recess starting this week. They are holding a series of town hall meetings to hear from their constituents (you) on important issues. We have put a listing of the meetings below so you can attend these meetings and speak out against the KXL. Stand with the people in the path.

Our representatives have misrepresented where Nebraskans stand on the pipeline, and can often be heard repeating TransCanada’s talking points. You may want to bring up the citizen’s lawsuit, which could render the Nebraska route moot, or maybe the fact that the pipeline still crosses the Sandhills and Aquifer. There are countless reasons why this pipeline shouldn’t go through, and you each have your own story. Don’t forget to make a phone call to their officesthis week as well. Your voice makes a great difference!

Here is the schedule of events this month. Additional events may be added.
