Meet the Students Getting Arrested Over Keystone XL

This Sunday, hundreds of students will risk arrest during the largest act of youth civil disobedience at the White House in a generation. This is XL Dissent: a youth-led movement protesting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.

More than 1,000 students from over 200 schools and 42 different states have come to Washington, DC to take part in the protest. Here are some of the faces of the growing climate justice movement that's sweeping the nation.
