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.

My name is Natalie Davenport and I've been working on the Michigan State University Quit Coal campaign for about two years. We have been working toward a 100% renewable energy goal while the administration has been fighting us every step of the way. Having the largest on campus coal plant forces us to lead the way in renewable energy on university campuses. Over the past year I have been more involved in the campaign than anything else I've ever done and it's because this is the most important thing that I have ever done. We need more people involved! With your support and solidarity leading up to April 13th (the day the board of trusties votes on the energy plan) we will be moving toward a future where nasty coal-burning power plants are out of all of our communities for ever.
