Look at what we’ve built:

It’s been a little over a year since we launched the Promise to Protect. Together, we stopped Keystone XL for yet another year, but despite our victories in court, we must be ready to mobilize.

As with Dakota Access, we know fossil fuel companies like TransCanada will stop at nothing to try and finish their black snake.

This video takes you to the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, which is less than half a mile from the pipeline’s proposed route. Communities here have been fighting Keystone XL for a decade, and we need your support now more than ever.

Everyday for the last several years we’ve stopped TransCanada and kept tar sands in the ground. We’re going to keep stopping them.

Join the Promise to Protect and commit to traveling to the pipeline route to engage in peaceful, creative resistance to Keystone XL when the call is put out by frontline communities to help stop this Black Snake. We will make a series of stands along the route – nonviolent but resolute displays of our continued opposition to a project that endangers us all. Join native and non-native communities in the Promise to Protect the land, water, and climate.


People power has stopped Keystone XL for years, and we’re not giving up now. This fight is about protecting our water, climate, and communities from fossil fuels – not just here but everywhere. Together, we will fight to stop all new fossil fuel projects and transition to the 100% renewable future we need.

Already, Indigenous communities, ranchers, farmers, and people from across the country have come together to build solar in the path of the project. Clean energy like solar is exactly what we need to curb the climate crisis, and the Solar XL campaign has been building it right in the path of the problem. We are unwilling to risk our water, land, sovereignty and climate for the fossil fuel industry’s greed.

We will come together in states along the pipeline route to build solar, defend the renewable future we want to see, and get trained to go back to our communities to fight for climate justice. Sign up to join us.

Big Update: What’s Next for the Promise to Protect

As I listened to TransCanada’s investor call last week, I hoped they would finally announce a decision to abandon Keystone XL for good. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. Here’s what’s next and what we know:
