We help people fight back against corporations and government policies that threaten the region's environment and inflict harm and injustice on local communities. Here are just some of the issues we're tackling along with our allies:

  • Unsustainable forestry practices, including the use of biomass to generate electricity
  • Environmental racism 
  • Energy poverty
  • Alton Gas 
  • Gull Island mega-hydrodam project
  • Proposed LNG plant in Goldboro
  • Small modular NUCLEAR reactors (SMRs)
  • Fugitive methane leaks at Donkin Mine
  • Proposed Sisson open-pit mine project
  • And lots of talk and not enough action when it comes to transitioning off fossil fuels!
