|Light the path forward: come to a candlelight vigil remembering the impacts of Duke’s toxic coal ash April 30
It’s been almost three months since a broken pipe sent tens of thousands of gallons of coal ash and contaminated water into the Dan River, and little has changed. At dozens of other sites, including at the Asheville plant and the Allen plant near Charlotte, Duke sits on a toxic timebomb of coal ash waste.
Politicians and powerbrokers fiddle while more coal burns, and Duke executives scheme to get the public to pay to clean up the coal ash waste across the state. They seem to think we’d forget about the damage that toxic coal ash is doing to our water. On the eve of Duke’s annual shareholder meeting, we will gather to show that we have not forgotten.
WHO: Sierra Club, faith leaders from numerous denominations, North Carolinians from across the state and you!
WHAT: Light the Path Forward: a candlelight vigil to remember the impacts of Duke’s coal ash
WHEN: Wednesday, April 30, 2014, 7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
WHERE: Duke headquarters, 550 S Tryon St, Charlotte, NC [Map]
