Coal ash is toxic. Tell President Obama that protection from coal ash contamination has to be robust, mandatory and nationwide.

Join Us for a Rally and Comment on Oregon's First Coal Export Project

July 9, 2013 - July 9, 2013
Portland, Oregon

In December, we turned out more people to a DEQ hearing in Portland than the agency had ever before seen on any issue. We asked for a Health Impact Assessment. We didn't get it. We asked for a site-specific Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). We didn't get it. We and the Governor asked for a regional EIS. The US Army Corps said "No" last week.

That's why we are rallying on July 9th to demand that DEQ and Governor Kitzhaber deny permits and stop coal exports!

WHEN: Tuesday, July 9th beginning at 5:30 PM

WHERE: Oregon Convention Center, 777 NE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd

Look for us outside at the NE corner of the Convention Center complex at the intersection of MLK Blvd and the Max Line near the statue of MLK.
