Beyond Coal

Category: Energy

Initiative Objective:


Retire dirty, polluting, coal-burning power plants.

Initiative Objective

The grassroots campaign to move beyond coal has seen an outpouring of support and victories that no one thought possible just a few years ago.

Hundreds of thousands of people around the country, talking to their neighbors, community leaders, media outlets, and most importantly, decision-makers, have successfully stopped over 150 coal plants to date! But with 500 coal-fired power plants still operating, spewing out deadly pollution, we have our work cut out for us as we create the citizen movement that will shut down coal and create a clean energy future.

Get involved locally!

Act now to stop coal!
