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 best childhood memories are of playing in a creek and walking through the woods at my grandparents house. The same area now is polluted and the hills are being mined for coal and other minerals. I am very saddened by the destruction of natural habitats in general. Animals are being forced from their homes and this can cause unsafe conditions for them and us. I recently acquired my degree in elementary education. I am not teaching yet, due to poor economy and my location; however when I do have my own classroom, I will be sure to teach my class about the problems we are facing with our environment. This subject is just as important as reading and math skills, because our future depends on awareness and doing something about it. Rhonda Mullins
