People’s Town Hall on Nuclear Weapons

Sunday, September 29, 2-4 PM

Town Hall Seattle 720 Seneca St, Ste. A, Seattle, WA, 98101

Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility and the Washington Against Nuclear Weapons Coalition presents a People’s Town Hall on Nuclear Weapons. This conversation informs the public and elected officials about the damage and dangers of nuclear war, examining Washington’s nuclear arsenals and the role of our state’s industry in producing them. Hear testimony from people whose communities have been directly impacted by the long legacy of the nuclear weapons industry in Washington State. The Town Hall culminates in the development of a resolution based on this testimony, complete with recommendations for action needed by Congress to be delivered to the Washington Senators.

Join this dynamic dialogue about one of the most significant threats facing the people of Washington State and the global community, and help develop concrete recommendations on how we can work with our elected officials to achieve a safer, less costly, and saner future that is free of weapons of mass destruction.

Public Hearing on Tacoma LNG Final Permit

The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency recently announced that it plans to grant their permit for this 8-million gallon fracked gas facility (the last one Puget Sound Energy needs before the facility is approved) despite a flawed analysis that ignores the latest science on methane leaks and climate change. WPSR and our Power Past Fracked Gas coalition partners are standing with the Puyallup Tribe to urge PSCAA to deny this permit at a public hearing on August 27th.

Can you join us? RSVP to Sarah (sarah@wpsr.org) or on Facebook or via link below!

What: Final Public Hearing on Tacoma LNG

When: August 27th from 2 to 5 p.m. and from 6:30 to 10 p.m.

Where: Rialto Theatre in Tacoma

RSVP for the public hearing to tell PSCAA you stand against this dangerous fracked gas project.
