Here's a letter from Julia Nerbonne, Executive Director of MN Interfaith Power & Life, about focusing MN faith communities on tar sands and the Alberta Clipper pipeline. Among the suggested actions is hosting a letter writing campaign in congregations by early April. MNIPL hopes to recruit 10-15 congregations, and if you click on the link you'll see that I'm the contact person who has been tasked with recruiting those congregations. I hope to discuss the possibility of recruiting at least one UU congregation at the next MUUSJA/CCC meeting, if Nancy, Marcy, and Mary Anne are willing to put me on the agenda. (I would also like to do a brief update of the Climate Conversations Pilot Campaign before it moves to the FUS/CCC action team.) Today Kathy Hollander, MN350's Tar Sands Team co-lead, and I discussed having a training session as well for persons who would like to testify at the administrative hearing on April 3. (I was speaking as someone who would like to testify and would appreciate a training session beforehand.) Hopefully I'll have more information about that as well at the March 18 meeting.

To: sjackzen46 [at] gmail.com Hello Friends: Today is a day to focus on Tar Sands pipelines. Click here <http://salsa4.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=efhxP%2BxfCKM%2B7WeR4hGQWN9htOZU%2FD2j>to learn more about the potentially devastating impacts of tar sands extraction on native people in Canada, on waterways and on the future of our climate. There are two very important actions that need the attention of faith communities in Minnesota in the near future. 1. Today, March 7th, is the deadline for the public to file comments to President Obama regarding the well-known Keystone XL pipeline. Join over 5000 Interfaith Power and Light voices and register your comments before midnight tonight. Click here<http://salsa4.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=7Un9MYzXa%2BJFKI9pD08GId9htOZU%2FD2j>to visit the Office of the U.S. Secretary of State and let them know how you feel about this pipeline. 1. Perhaps even more important: join us in helping to stop the expansion of Tar Sands Oil export through Minnesota. MNIPL is supporting the work of MN350, the Sierra Club, Honor the Earth and others to bring the voice of opposition to the administrative law judge reviewing the Alberta Clipper project currently before the Public Utilities Commission. Did you know that, if approved, this pipeline will carry more tar sands oil than the Keystone XL, and right through Minnesota? - Click here<http://salsa4.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=gnjXIXyAcPE%2B7Z%2Fr7Ck80t9htOZU%2FD2j>to learn more and submit your own letter to the administrative law judge by early April. - And if this is inspiring, click here<http://salsa4.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=IlLniyivXGfWmpHxKVLvhXBGt5jyTKDX>to offer to host a letter writing campaign in your congregation.
