Note: This training is meant to be fun, but also not to be taken lightly. There are a limited number of spots available, therefore you should only register if you are 100% committed to attending. Because there are limited spots, only confirmed participants will receive the location information for the training in the days leading up to the event.
This training will educate, empower, and elevate the voices and skills of community members to take back their land and push out extractive oil and gas companies. After the training, community members will be equipped with the knowledge and support necessary to organize their own actions to stop the fossil fuel industry and be prepared to take action on the route of Keystone XL if invited by Indigenous leaders. RSVP now to save your spot.
This tour is historic. Never before have native and non native allies come together to build power in this way. This is an exciting opportunity for those who are committed to stopping the Keystone XL pipeline and ending the development of fossil fuels in their communities.
The Promise to Protect is a commitment to resist fossil fuels where you live and prepare to take creative action along the Keystone XL pipeline route when called upon by Indigenous leaders. With millions of dollars being poured into fossil fuel projects each year and TransCanada planning to begin pipeline construction this June, we must be ready to mobilize and fight back to protect the land, air, and water. Construction may be delayed, but we know that fossil fuel companies like TransCanada will stop at nothing to build their dirty projects.
