Building a Community Response to Stop the Coal Trains

[Note: the Bozeman Climate Alliance isn't the host of this event; we include it on our calendar for informational purposes.]

This meeting will be a facilitated open discussion to explore a wide range of potential community responses and review examples from other communities, including Bellingham’s plan to ban coal shipments entirely from its ports. Jeff Milchen, founder of Reclaim Democracy!, will offer a summary of resistance efforts in other communities along the coal export corridor. Bring your ideas and energy to develop action plans to protect our quality of life and local economies in the Gallatin/Yellowstone region.

    For those of you who couldn't make it, here is a link to a Rocky Mountain Independent Media writeup: http://www.rockymt.org/?q=node/478. The five working groups that formed to begin to implement these strategies are:

    Networking
    Media/outreach
    City resolution/ordinance
    Action
    State policy

    For more information, to sign up to receive periodic email updates, or to get involved with a working group, email [masked]. For many local and state resources on this work, go to ReclaimDemocracy.org/coal.

    Here's a note from CREDO Action: Monday evening, after hearing from more than 200 CREDO activists in Missoula, the City Council passed a resolution calling on the Army Corps of Engineers to hold public hearings in Missoula and conduct a comprehensive review of the cumulative impacts of all coal export projects throughout the region.1
