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.

The reason I want to Quit Coal is because of the corruption and greed perpetrated by the energy industry. Burning coal for energy is contributing to climate change in a big way. Scientists have warned us that we need to make swift changes to our energy grid in order to curb its catastrophic effects. The dirty energy industry in response has paid off our corrupt politicians and infiltrated every branch of our government. For some reason fossil fuel companies still receive subsidies amidst record profits while renewable energy companies struggle to compete on an uneven playing field. These evil companies are doing all this just to make themselves richer at the expense of the rest of the world. Storms are getting more intense and dangerous and people are getting sick from the pollution spewing out of these plants on a daily basis. I decided that I wanted to work to do everything in my power to stop these criminals.
