WINNING TOGETHER We are millions of people taking action for progressive change

In response to House Republicans once again holding a meaningless vote to force approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, CREDO released the following statement:

“The tenth vote by House Republicans to force approval really begs the question: Why are Republicans so obsessed with Keystone XL?” said Elijah Zarlin, senior campaigner at CREDO. “It’s not about gas prices or jobs, it primarily benefits Canadian oil companies at the cost of American land, water, and scorching our climate,” he added. “The Republicans work for the American people, not Canadian oil companies. It’s time they start acting like it and drop their obsessive Keystone XL fetish.”

CREDO has played a key role in the fight to stop the Keystone XL pipeline. Below are some highlights of our activism.

97,000 ACTIVISTS HAVE SIGNED THE KEYSTONE XL PLEDGE OF RESISTANCE: More than 97,000 people have signed the Keystone XL Pledge of Resistance, committing to risk arrest in peaceful, dignified civil disobedience, if President Obama’s administration moves toward approving the Keystone XL pipeline. As part of the Pledge of Resistance, thousands of activists have been trained to lead or participate in direct actions where they would risk arrest.

MORE THAN 3.8 MILLION PETITION SIGNATURES: CREDO Activists have generated 3,858,625 petition signatures in opposition to Keystone XL.

MORE THAN 500,000 PUBLIC COMMENTS: CREDO activists have submitted 511,000 public comments to President Obama’s state department in opposition to Keystone XL.

MORE THAN 40,000 PHONE CALLS IN OPPOSITION TO KEYSTONE XL: CREDO Activists have made 42,804 phone calls to the White House, the State Department, the EPA, Members of Congress and others in opposition to Keystone XL

283 PROTEST VIGILS ATTENDED BY MORE THAN 10,000 ACTIVISTS: Just 72 hours after the release of the State Department’s final environmental impact statement, CREDO organized 283 protest vigils in 49 states, with more than 10,000 total participants. It was the biggest, rapid-response, on-the-ground demonstration of Obama’s presidency to date.
