Right now, communities in Montana and Wyoming are standing up against a massive proposed expansion of coal mining in the Powder River Basin, a project necessary to making a coal port happen in Bellingham.
Through August 24, we have a critical opportunity to take action and say NO to more new coal mines: http://org2.salsalabs.com/
Join us on July 2nd to hear from Nick Mullins, a fourth generation coal miner from Appalachia that will be visiting Bellingham to talk about what the coal industry has meant for mining communities. The event will feature a presentation, opportunity for questions, and a means for putting what we can learn from communities like Nick’s into meaningful action.
