The Senate is about to reverse President Obama's courageous decision last month to say noto the dangerous Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

As early as Tuesday, they may vote to greenlight construction of the pipeline without anyenvironmental or economic review.

That's why for the next 24 hours dozens of organizations from across our movement are joining together to collect and deliver 500,000 messages to the Senate.

Tell Your Senators: Stop Keystone XL

President Obama's decision to stand up to oil industry lobbyists, and threats from Republicans, was a huge win for both people-powered organizing and for fighting climate change. Heavy tar sands oil creates three times more carbon pollution than conventional oil.

Sign the petition and tell the Senate not to undercut the president's bold stand against the Keystone XL pipeline and dirty energy lobbyists.

Thanks for all you do!
