Coal companies want to turn the Pacific Northwest into a coal extraction and export zone, but communities across the region are fighting back by building a new movement for clean energy. Last summer in Montana, people from across the Northwest came together for the Coal Export Action, one of the largest acts of climate-related civil disobedience in this region’s history. This spring, Northwest climate organizations are preparing to build on this effort, by launching new campaigns aimed at harnessing the power of direct action to stop coal exports.
Come to this presentation on Thursday, February 28, from 7-8p.m. in Thompsen 175 to learn about what happened at the Coal Export Action, how to get involved in this growing movement, and why global efforts to reduce climate change depend on what happens in the Northwest.
