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.
