November 10th: Coal Free Action Day!

Put it in your calendars! We need you to come show your support!

Tuesday is the day where we get to demonstrate all the student support for moving beyond coal at BU!
There will be two events:

1. Clean Energy Media Event: Nov. 10, 11AM,
The front of the Cooper Administration Building (by the Peace Quad)
Meet at 10:45 to come together to publicly ask President DeFleur to make BU a leader in clean energy by moving beyond coal! We need AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE to be there! It should be really exciting and last less than 30 minutes. We have the chance to really make change on this campus, but we need you to show your support.

2. Movie Screening: COAL COUNTRY: Nov. 10, 7PM,
Science 1, room 149
Come see this stunning documentary (running time: 40 min) revealing the truth about mountaintop removal mining. With guest speaker Gabriel Piser.

Clear your calendars and come to BOTH EVENTS! It is critical that we demonstrate our support not just with numbers, but with faces and voices.
