Mark Ruffalo, who has courageously fought against fracking in his home state of New York and across the country, has issued a video in support of the Tar Sands Action, August 20-September 3. Mark joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who earlier this week came out in support of the acton against the Keystone XL pipeline.

Take Action

Sign & Share the Petition to Obama

Only the President of the United States has the authority to block the Keystone XL pipeline. Tell President Obama to keep the Keystone XL oil pipeline out of our backyards. Everyone in North America needs to be aware of this dangerous pipeline proposal, so please share this petition with your friends and family. Make sure they know that the opportunity to stop Keystone XL is right now.

Join the Tar Sands Action in D.C.

From August 20-September 3, concerned people from across the continent—students, celebrities, scientists, Indigenous peoples, church groups, environmentalists, parents, and more—are gathering in Washington for a mass act of civil disobedience at the White House. Over 1500 individuals are already registered to join this wave of sustained sit-ins and send a clear message to the President: The People are saying NO to the 2000-mile climate-destroying Keystone XL pipeline.

If you’re ready to do whatever it takes to stop climate change, you can register to join the action at

    Everyone who’s involved in this action is so key…from community members impacted by the tar sands up north in Alberta to climate scientists to parents who just really want to give their kids a livable future to the celebrities that add the polish and sparkle that attracts a much greater audience to sit up and pay attention to what’s happening and why.

    Thanks to Mark and to all the incredible organizers and participants of the Tar Sands Action!
