Join the movement to quit coal

Across America, people are living in the shadow of the coal industry.

We have created Quit Coal Community Forums as a tool to help you organize in your community to fight coal and demand clean energy.

Once you’ve joined an existing Community Forum, you can connect with others who are interested in the same issues, learn more, and post news and resources.

 

 

Your story can educate a person, inspire others, spread a great idea, or help you connect with someone else standing up to the coal industry.

Your story is more powerful than you think and we want to hear it.

Here in the "coal region" of Pennsylvania, i grew up playing sports all the time,I had no breathing problems, then when i was preteen they built a coal gen plant a couple miles away, when I was 17 I got bronchitis really bad and since then have been told I have asthma, I'm 34 now and def do have asthma,I always wondered if there was a correlation between that plant,our dusty roads and my breathing prob, I'm not a doctor but just find it weird as a kid up till 17 I had no breathing problems. Our town and surrounding towns are filthy. This is in central PA, plant is in Marion Heights Pa.
