Watch our latest television commerical about the
dangerous impacts coal trains will have on our
communities.

Over the past two weeks a thousand citizens have attended hearings to oppose a 44 million ton coal export terminal in Longview WA. 

This proposal will affect the Pacific Northwest by bringing 16 loud, polluting coal trains through the region every day. This is in addition to the 18 coal trains per day that Peabody coal wants to send through our community for a second coal terminal proposal in Bellingham, WA. These plans would cut off emergency responders from the neighborhoods they serve and clog daily commuter traffic for hours every day.

Foreign coal companies like Ambre Energy hope to make big profits by shipping coal to Asia, and they want you to suffer the costs.

You've sent messages, signed petitions, and written letters. Now is the time to stand up for our families and protect Vancouver. 

RSVP for the hearing on the proposal to build a 44 million ton coal terminal in Longview, WA, in Vancouver on October 9.
