Keystone XL Must be Stopped:
Commit to Peaceful Resistance on the Route

Look at what we’ve built:

One of Trump’s first moves as President was to reverse the Obama/Biden Administration’s decision to reject Keystone XL. In response, we launched the Promise to Protect in 2017 and together we’ve successfully stopped Keystone XL from being built. While campaigning, Joe Biden promised to rescind the KXL permits to stop this pipeline once and for all. But right now, TC Energy is doing everything they can to move construction forward.

We must keep up the fight to hold Biden to his word, and be ready to mobilize. As with Dakota Access, we know fossil fuel companies like TC Energy will stop at nothing to try and finish their black snake. This video shows our movement’s commitment to protecting our communities, our water and our climate. We need your support now more than ever.

Everyday for the last several years we’ve stopped TC Energy 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.

We are a coalition of Tribes, Indigenous leaders, farmers and ranchers, and climate justice organizers who’ve been working together to build a movement to keep fossil fuels in the ground. Check out our partners page for more information.

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