Keystone XL, 350.org, SoCal Climate Action Coalition 350, Tar Sands Action SoCal

Join SoCal Climate Action Coalition 350 to Draw the Line Against Extreme Fossil Fuels on September 21st!

350.org’s Draw the Line Campaign

For the last two years grassroots organizations and individuals across the country have been working to raise awareness in opposition of the Keystone XL pipeline. In June, President Obama, in his Climate Action Plan, said the pipeline’s effects on climate change will be the deciding factor in his decision to approve Keystone XL. With new evidence revealing significant carbon pollution increases if Keystone XL is approved, Americans are escalating their resistance to this dirty tar sands pipeline.

On Sept. 21, people will participate in hundreds of community actions throughout the U.S. as part of 350.org’s Draw the Line on Keystone XL campaign, calling on President Obama to keep his promise and deny approval of Keystone XL. Already 1,253 people have been arrested and more than 69,000 have pledged to risk arrest to halt to the construction of the pipeline.


On September 21st, 2013, we will draw the line on Keystone XL and the tar sands to tell him that keeping his climate promises means rejecting Keystone XL.
