Coal Costs Us: Week of Climate Action
August 3, 2020 - August 7, 2020
Coal costs us. It costs us our health, our economy, our climate and our environment.
There are 6 coal plants in Wisconsin that have yet to be announced for retirement. It is time for the utilities to commit to closing these dirty and costly plants. Join us for a week of climate action to demand a better future for our state.
Date and Time: Mon, Aug 3, 2020 8:00 AM (Local Time) – Fri, Aug 7, 2020 8:00 PM (Local Time)
Monday – learn: Join us for an online screening of the documentary We Neighbors, the story of Wisconsinites living next to the Oak Creek/Elm Road coal plants, which are majority-owned by We Energies. After the documentary, we will have a panel discussion featuring healthcare professionals, neighbors to the coal plant, and clean energy advocates.
Tuesday – share: Share your story and amplify others’ stories. Tune into a podcast about coal in Wisconsin, watch personal stories on Facebook Live, and share a story of your own.
Wednesday – speak up for clean energy: Testify or submit written comments in support for clean energy! There will be a public hearing and written comment opportunities on this day.
Thursday – call: Call your utility and ask for a coal-free future.
Friday – create: Spread the word about the need for clean energy with art, chalked messages, posters, yard signs, and more!
