Feed the Body; Nourish the Soul
Pizza Gathering and Candlelight Vigil
It’s been almost three months since a broken pipe sent tens of thousands of gallons of coal ash and contaminated water into the Dan River, and little has changed. At dozens of other sites, including at the Asheville plant and the Allen plant near Charlotte, Duke sits on a toxic time bomb of coal ash waste.
Politicians and powerbrokers fiddle while more coal burns, and Duke executives scheme to get the public to pay to clean up the coal ash waste across the state. They seem to think we’d forget about the damage that toxic coal ash is doing to our water. On the eve of Duke’s annual shareholder meeting, we will gather to show that we have not forgotten.
Join Sierra Club, other partners, and members of multiple faith groups as we hold a candlelight vigil outside Duke’s headquarters in Charlotte on the evening of April 30. But first we’ll gather outside Fuel Pizza on The Green at 6:30 and serve pizza slices and beverages from 6:45 until 7:15. Please RSVP so that we can plan for our pizza and beverage needs.
At 7:15 we’ll move over to the Duke Headquarters to start the candlelight vigil at 7:30. See below for the location of the gathering and vigil.
