Western Washington Fellowship of Reconciliation: November 10, 2012 Retreat

We See a Train a’Coming: The Climate Crisis, the Coal Train & Beyond

The Western Washington Fellowship of Reconciliation’s (WWFOR) Fall Retreat is for everyone who cares about the climate crisis, environmental justice, and jobs, in the context of the dangers of moving millions of tons of dirty coal through our communities. This is for everyone who supports a better energy future and grassroots democracy.

People in the Puget Sound and along the Pacific coast are organizing vigorous campaigns to stop this. Western Washington FOR’s 2012 Fall Retreat will inform and activate us.

Giant coal companies are pushing their plans to extract massive quantities of coal from Montana and Wyoming and ship it on exposed rail cars to West Coast ports, spewing dangerous coal dust all along the way.They want Washington’s and Oregon’s ports to export if to China and other countries that will burn it, seriously polluting the world’s air, and hurt our climate.

$15 conference fee (or what you are able to pay). Bring your own lunch. Check out the registration form at www.wwfor.org
