Shut Down Brayton Point
On July 27-28th, hundreds of citizens will come together for a mobilization at the Brayton Point Coal Plant, the largest fossil fuel plant between Maryland and Maine. We will call for Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and others to immediately close the Brayton Point coal plant and ensure a just transition for workers and host communities towards a healthy and sustainable future.
Find out about others who decided to get involved. Read their stories here.
