For generations, people in River Rouge, Michigan, have lived within sniffing distance of a coal-fired power plant, an oil refinery, a sewage-treatment plant, a steel mill, and other industrial polluters.

The current issue of Sierra Magazine documents the cost of coal on Michigan's River Rouge community members, along with three other communities across the country.1

Please take a moment to watch this powerful video on the River Rouge community.

With your help, the Sierra Club's Detroit Environmental Justice program2 is working with River Rouge community members to address the issues at the plant and move DTE Energy beyond coal.

Please help us spread the word, by sharing this video with your social networks.
