End Our Community's Use Of Mountaintop Removal Coal!
On April 17th, 2014 Gainesville Loves Mountains' 3+ year campaign to end GRU's purchases of mountaintop removal coal will culminate in a public presentation and a motion by Commissioner Lauren Poe before the full City Commission. Please put the evening meeting of the April 17th Gainesville City Commission on your calendar and plan to attend and speak in support of our efforts.
If you have a few minutes to a few hours between now and then to help us win this victory, here are some additional things you can do to help:
1) Sign our online petition and ask your friends to do the same.
2) Spread the word about the April 17th City Commission meeting on Facebook.
3) Contact your City Commissioners personally to ask for their support. Even a brief personal phone call or email with the simple message “I want GRU to bring a permanent end to their consumption of MTR coal” goes a long way.
4) Help us outreach for the April 17th meeting through phone-banking and canvassing at public events. If you have even one hour of time between now and the 17th and would be willing to help get out and spread the word, please contact us and we'll put you to work!
