This is a general meeting of the Metro Detroit Beyond Coal Campaign. The Beyond Coal Campaign is a national campaign that has successfully phased out about half of the United States' coal plants in the last decade. Building off previous successes, we are working on what is next for our coal communities, resisting the environmental rollback, and working towards 100% renewable energy for local communities

As our environment continues to face an onslaught of bad ideas, come learn how to defend and fight back in this new age of climate denial. We will hear from cities that are #readyfor100 percent renewable energy and talk about what's currently happening at the federal level, ways to resist, and things you can do to get involved.

How much regulation do you think coal plants have on dumping their wastewater into the Great Lakes? If you answered "almost nothing" to this question, you'd, unfortunately, be correct. Coal ash is largely unregulated but that's about to change. The Environmental Protection Agency has released new rules that protect our water quality. However, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality is once again allowing industries to avoid the law for as long as possible. Please join us at our next meeting on Tuesday, September 27, 2016, to learn more. Location, as always, is 2550 Hilton Rd, Ferndale, MI 48220. We also discuss a few other important things, including a lawsuit from US Steel that will impact the last few years of work we've been doing around sulfur dioxide pollution. RSVP Link: https://www.facebook.com/events/282816425450428/ Other items include the volunteer dinner, upcoming events, and the potential to be pushing back against DTE Energy's rate increases. I hope to see you there! Andrew Sarpolis Associate Organizing Representative Southeast Michigan Beyond Coal Campaign 2550 Hilton Rd, Suite C Ferndale, MI 48220 Phone (248) 924-4857

Hello Everybody, Happy New Year!! It's time for another exciting year of advocacy and activism. We have had quite a bit of media attention this year already and an astounding FIVE HUNDRED people attended the last public hearing this last Wednesday. What an amazing turnout from volunteers and community members. The MDEQ is feeling the pressure to act but that doesn't mean our campaign is over. We have LOTS of work to do. Please join me tomorrow, Januaury 12, 2016 at 6:30. The address is 2550 Hilton Rd, Ferndale, MI 48220. We will discuss moving forward and upcoming events. I hope to see you there!
