Join us for a local stop by Elisa Young, a grassroots activist from SE Ohio fighting to protect her community’s health and environment. Elisa Young is a 7th generation Appalachian from Meigs County Ohio, and founder of Meigs Citizens Action Now! She will share about ongoing campaigns and struggles to keep their community from becoming the center of the largest concentration of coal-fired power plants in the United States - 9 coal plants in an approximate 10-mile radius from her family's farm with several more being proposed. Meigs Citizens Action Now! stands firmly against the proliferation of polluting coal industries that would create an environmental sacrifice zone of the foothills of Appalachia, and supports the development of clean, renewable energy jobs.  We’ll discuss how current coal plants, as well as those purposed in Michigan contribute to the problem and how we can come together to put an end to the practice.
