BAN on Coal Passes! NO COAL IN OAKLAND!

News of a BIG win from our partner 350 Bay Area: "YAHOO — WOO HOO! On June 27, the Oakland City Council voted unanimously (7-0 w/1 not present) to BAN coal exports from our city. Thank you city council members for your leadership and vision. Thanks for the hard work: No Coal in Oakland, the Sierra Club, West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project, organized labor, the faith community, community organizations, health groups and hundreds of volunteers who worked so hard for this outcome. We really are > Fossil Fuels!" — 350 Bay Area
