Join the movement to quit coal

Across America, people are living in the shadow of the coal industry.

We have created Quit Coal Community Forums as a tool to help you organize in your community to fight coal and demand clean energy.

Once you’ve joined an existing Community Forum, you can connect with others who are interested in the same issues, learn more, and post news and resources.

 

 

Your story can educate a person, inspire others, spread a great idea, or help you connect with someone else standing up to the coal industry.

Your story is more powerful than you think and we want to hear it.

We here in Nebraska have high level heavy metals in our drinking water; we also happen to have coal fired power plants and the state recently used coal ash to 'break up the ice on the Platte River'. Coincidence? I think not!It is not fair to poison our drinking water with this toxic ash and it is the responsibility of the federal government, through the Clean Water Act and the Clean Air Act, to regulate this kind of behavior by private enterprise.Please enforce these laws and protect our drinking water and the air we breathe.
