Long-awaited victory against Big Coal!

The Oregon Department of State Lands (DSL) denied a key permit necessary for Ambre Energy’s Morrow Pacific coal export proposal. Ambre’s dirty coal project would have sent hundreds of coal trains through the region, thousands of coal barges down the Columbia River, and further disrupted our climate with dangerous carbon pollution.

Governor Kitzhaber and Oregon state agencies listened to our broad and deep coalition from across the region and made the right choice.

Send a message to DSL Director Mary Abrams and Governor Kitzhaber today, and thank them for their leadership!
