This is a game changer. On Oct. 22, city council will vote on whether or not to support a resolution to start planning a transition off of the Asheville Coal Plant.
Duke Energy's Asheville Coal Plant is the largest single source of climate disruption pollution in Western North Carolina, and after this vote we could have the opportunity to start in on planning a real transition off of coal and onto clean energy.
We need you there! City council needs to see a huge showing of support for this vote. Just by
showing up, you can help us show our council members that Asheville is committed to ending coal burning in Western North Carolina.
Come join us for this historic day! RSVP to let us know you'll be there.
WHO: Asheville City Council, Sierra Club, and you!
WHAT: City Council Meeting
WHEN: Tuesday, Oct 22, 5:00 p.m.
WHERE: City Council Chamber, City Hall Building [Map]
Questions? Contact Emma Greenbaum at email@example.com
P.S.- join us for a party at Pack's Tavern directly following the vote!
For the mountains, each other, and our planet,
