Here's today's challenge:
In 2011, environmental activists from all over America brought the risks of the Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline to the nation's attention, guaranteed that it would be an election issue in 2012, and prompted the President to take a stand. Many are people of faith. 1,252 people acted in the long tradition of non-violent civil disobedience articulated by Thoreau, Gandhi, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others by getting arrested in front of the White House in August - making this the largest environmental civil disobedience in history. In January 2012, over 800,000 people sent a message to tell their senator to say "NO!" to Keystone.

Consider what you will do in the coming months as opportunities emerge for advocacy and action in this ongoing struggle.
