We need your help…Together we will stop this!
RSVP for March 23rd Update and Training Session: https://actionnetwork.org/events/march23rdtraining?source=direct_link&
The time has finally come– the official public hearings on Danskammer have been set, and they will be virtual on March 31st at 1pm & 6pm. Details on how to register are available here. We’re holding an update and training on March 23rd at 7 pm to get folks up to speed. Throughout the evening, we will learn about the application process, go over how to give virtual public testimony, share talking points and hear from key leaders on the issue.
The state has one year to review Danskammer’s application and determine whether to approve or deny the project– but they’ve only guaranteed us a couple of public hearings during this year-long process. That means this upcoming hearing is critical for our campaign!
In order to stop this power plant we must demonstrate to Governor Cuomo and the Siting Board that New Yorkers are strongly opposed to Danskammer. We must show up in force to the virtual public hearing!
