November 14th: Learn the
Coal Hard Truth about coal

Oregon coal train
btn_orange RSVP

Dear Friend,

In the past year we've made major strides towards a coal-free Northwest by setting deadlines to get our last coal-fired power plants off of coal. But now Big Coal threatens to halt that process by shipping millions of tons of coal through Oregon and Washington to send abroad -- spewing toxic coal dust and diesel pollution, putting our safety at risk, clogging our railroads, and contributing to climate change the whole way.

Join us at a community forum to learn what Big Coal doesn't want you to hear: how coal trains will threaten our quality of life in the Portland area. Learn how you can join forces with your friends and neighbors to put the brakes on Big Coal's dirty and dangerous plans for the Northwest.
