Pipeline expert Paul Blackburn of Plains Justice and author Mary Pipher will speak Saturday at an education and action forum about the proposed TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline.

A panel will present information on the pipeline, followed by a Q&A with attendees. The forum will run from 10-11:30 a.m. at First United Methodist Church, 2723 N. 50th St., and will wrap up with a grassroots activism training and launch of a new action guide, according to a news release.

Keystone XL is TransCanada’s second proposal for moving oil through Nebraska from the tar sands of Alberta to U.S. refineries.

Sponsors of the forum include the Nebraska chapter of 350.org, Audubon Nebraska, Bold Nebraska, Guardians of the Good Life, Nebraska Bioneers, Nebraska Farmers Union, Nebraska Green Party, Nebraska League of Conservation Voters, Nebraska Sierra Club, Nebraska Wildlife Federation and Nebraskans for Peace.
