Obama, Stop the Dakota Pipeline

obama

Monday Action for 9/12/16: Urge Obama to kill the Dakota Pipeline. He could. He rejected Keystone and it’s back here in a different guise.

Maybe you signed an email about this already? Know this: Obama really responds to personal notes and calls. Did you know he personally wrote back to our Monday Actionists? Climate Change is his stated issue (see this week’s New York Times article) yet the man really needs to hear from voters – that’s what makes him act. Let’s help him out:
————————————————–
Dear President Obama,
Like you, I think the trends are terrifying: I am urgently concerned about climate change. This is the gravest threat facing us all and future generations depend on us to halt it. We need a call to action, a nationwide War Effort against Climate Change, as Bill McKibben described recently. You can set the tone for your successor.

McKibben reminds us that your administration announced months ago that new projects would now have to pass a climate test before being approved–we need that test applied to the Dakota Access pipeline. And we need to make sure that anything in Indian country never gets built again without full tribal consultation.

President Obama, it’s urgent that you push as hard as you can. We need you. All our children need you. Thank you so much.

Sincerely,

YOUR NAME

YOUR TOWN AND STATE
