- Jane Kleeb, founder of Bold, the lead group that worked to build an alliance of farmers, ranchers and Tribal Nations to stop the Keystone XL pipeline from using eminent domain. Jane brings communications, political and organizing skills to pipeline fights across the country.
- Pipeline expert Paul Blackburn gives an overview of this unproven “carbon capture” technology, and the unsound economics and safety and health risks from these proposed carbon pipelines.
- Attorney Brian Jorde with Omaha’s Domina Law Group, who gave a presentation on landowners’ rights with respect to eminent domain, and spoke to the advantages of forming a legal “co-op” with other landowners who oppose their land being taken by eminent domain for these projects — the Nebraska Easement Action Team (NEAT).
