Call on State Lands Director to Deny Coal Permit - Salem - Nov. 13

Join us as we welcome Mary Abrams, new Director of the Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL), into office and call on her to deny the wetlands fill permit for the coal export terminal at the Port of Morrow.

Tuesday November 13th, 11:00 AM, Department of State Lands, 775 Summer St. NE, Salem.

We will gather to hear from several key speakers, including Jeremy Ferguson, the Mayor of Milwaukie, Andy Harris of Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility and a recreationist from the Gorge, who will share their grave concerns about coal export terminals in Oregon, particularly at the Port of Morrow. We will also formally present the thousands of petition signatures from Oregonians statewide calling on the DSL to deny the removal-fill permit in favor of a area wide environmental impact statement that takes into account the full impacts of coal exports on our communities. Join us Tuesday November 13th at 11 AM and bring a friend!
