Say No to Coal in Northern Cheyenne Homelands!

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives

Petition Statement

We urge you to oppose the development of the Tongue River Railroad, which would transport coal to Minnesota Power. Instead, please support clean energy alternatives and demand that Minnesota Power upgrade their outdated plants.
There are currently 2,809 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Stand with us to protect the Northern Cheyenne homelands. Minnesota Power is planning to purchase coal from Otter Creek, which is an area that historically has been used by Native American tribes including the Northern Cheyenne and Crow. This coalmine will have numerous impacts to the land, wildlife, water, and air, and ultimately, it will destroy sacred sites. The use of the coal would release 2.5 billion tons of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere.
