Community Activism Ramping up at Our New Field Office
by Crina Hoyer
Like you, we cannot fathom our county hosting North America’s largest coal export facility. We can’t picture downtown Bellingham choked by coal trains. We can’t believe a short-sighted project such as this--one that is based on shipping a dirty, carbon-based fuel to our economic competitors--is worth risking our health, community’s character, tourism dollars, property values, fisheries, local businesses, agricultural land, clean water, and safe shipping channels.
We are doing everything within our power to stop this project, but we need you.
But those phones won’t get answered unless you help make calls. Those doors won’t get opened unless you knock. This proposal won’t be stopped unless you participate.
We have 1 month to organize before the scoping process begins. (Officials believe scoping will begin in July). We will have 60 days to make our voices heard.* We need to act quickly and we need your help.
Call our field organizer, Matt Petryni today and sign-up for a 2-hr phone shift.

*Regulators continue to debate over the length of the scoping process. In most cases, communities are allowed a 60-day comment period.
