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 worst part of my story is that we can live a long time with coal before we realize how bad it is. Growing up in northern New England it took 20 years before we figured out that it was acid rain caused by sulfur in coal burned at power plants to our south and west that was causing the evergreens to turn brown and die.I only lived for 5 years in a house that used coal for heat. The only other coal use was the steam locomotives but that ended in 1957.
