You, people of faith and spiritual communities all across the Northwest, are pros at attending hearings to stand up for a clean and safe future for all of God’s creation. It’s time once again to mark your calendars and bring out your red clothes to join Earth Ministry and the Power Past Coal coalition at public hearings for the proposed coal export terminal in Longview, WA.

Coal’s future is bleak – Millennium backer Arch Coal filed for bankruptcy in January and their dreams of mining in Montana’s Otter Creek are over. But Big Coal still wants to use the Columbia River as a dirty coal chute to Asia as their last hope to prop up an unhealthy industry.

Fortunately, the movement to stop dirty coal from polluting our towns and rivers is bigger and stronger than ever – and the moral voice of the faith community is a critical piece of this success. Now is our time to shine, and lock out dirty coal once and for all.
