Erin Fagan is a student activist and marine conservation major attending Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. She began organizing as a regional director for the Clean Air Defense Campaign, which led to positions as a Campus Coordinator and Student Board Training Coordinator with Greenpeace USA. Erin has also worked on land, ocean, and air campaigns with a local advocacy group, TerraScapes Environmental. Currently, Erin is organizing with and running a campus group for the Virginia Student Environmental Coalition, which was launched this past October at the national PowerShift conference, lobbying with the multi-issue group, the Virginia Student Power Network, and helping to plan Virginia PowerShift. Of course, Erin is also recruiting and organizing for XL Dissent throughout Virginia.  When Erin is not organizing for environmental and social causes, she is active in several student organizations, works in a community garden, writes poetry as inspiration strikes, and hangs out with her dachshund.

The Keystone XL pipeline is set to bring toxic tar sands from Alberta, Canada to the Gulf Coast, where it will be refined for export. As young people we’ve had enough: approval of the pipeline would ensure that our generation takes on the risk of oil spills, increased toxic pollution from refineries, health disasters, and a exacerbated  climate change.

Join us in Washington DC March 1-2 to tell President Obama to reject the pipeline to protect us from a future defined by climate chaos.
