Brooklynite carries sign around New York to raise awareness about Keystone XL.

The controversial Keystone XL pipeline has inspired people to form blockades to slow construction, get arrested at the White House, form a tree blockade and occupy bank buildings that are invested in the project, just to name a few of the actions activists have taken to stop the project.

For one Nebraskan living in New York, the easiest, but most effective way to raise awareness is with a simple sign. After being given a anti-Keystone XL yard sign that was overlooked in her Brooklyn neighborhood, Barbara Haws decided to try another way to get the message in front of as many people as possible. Watch the video above to see her simple, but effective method of spreading awareness.
