Dear citizens of Northeast Ohio who are concerned about health, prosperity and/or the environment....
There is a coal burning power plant operated by Medical Center Company (MCCO) in University Circle, and another has been planned by MCCO for construction in East Cleveland, and that is harmful to the environment, our economy, and the health and educational achievement and so success in life of all citizens in neighboring communities, like Cleveland, East Cleveland and Cleveland Heights, and regionally and worldwide.
This Saturday, 3-5 PM - at Peace Park and around Coventry Village, in Cleveland Heights - you are encouraged to meetup with a representative of the Sierra Club to learn more about the pollution and harm caused by MCCO - and alternatives to burning coal in your neighborhood.
The Sierra Club is supporting our community to "Move Beyond Coal" and in preparation for a Federal EPA hearing on the renewal of the permit for the MCCO plant to continue burning coal polluting Cleveland Heights - August 10, 2010, 4:30-6:45 PM at the MLK Branch of the Cleveland Public Library
You are encouraged to attend that public meeting to speak out against needless pollution of your neighborhoods and families by MCCO, to "Move Beyond Coal".
You are invited to join Sierra Club Campuses Beyond Coal field organizer Matthew/Mattie Reitman for an informal public awareness meet-up in Cleveland Heights, Saturday, July 24, 2010, from 3-5 PM, to discuss all of this and help spread word in your community.
The Cleveland Heights meet-up will begin at 3 PM and end at 5 PM in the shaded sculpture area at the entrance to Peace Park, at Euclid Heights Boulevard and Coventry Road, and the occasion will feature some walking information sharing in the surrounding Coventry Village neighborhood, grass-roots style. Learn about moving beyond coal from the Sierra Club - join the walk - distribute some fliers - educate the community - share in an important environmental cause with your neighbors.
Take this great opportunity to become informed and active fighting pollution in Northeast Ohio while experiencing the unique and wonderful qualities and people of Cleveland Heights - long a progressive, "No-Nukes" zone.
