Today, Chad Tolman and Elizabeth Siftar will be representing First UU Wilmington Green Sanctuary/NC3 with Delaware Interfaith Power and Light, Sierra Club, and other environmental justice groups in defending adequate implementation of President Obama’s Clean Power Plan at DNREC.

The public comment meeting will begin at 6:00 pm at
Department of Natural Resources & Environmental Control (DNREC) Auditorium
89 Kings Highway
Richardson and Robbins Building 
Dover, DE, 19901


This is a follow-up to the inter-faith petition drive that Green Sanctuary sponsored earlier to urge Sens. Carper and Coons and Rep. Carney to vote in support of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan.

Elizabeth writes: “We consider this a moral issue.  We are now at the stage of state implementation and the push-back is well organized to degrade the CPP implementation in DE.  We in the faith and environmental justice communities are committed to staying the course in getting CPP adequately implemented in Delaware.”

After the hearing, there will be a public comments period. Green Sanctuary/ Interfaith Power and Light will be mobilizing within our church congregations to express broad support for full and timely implementation of the Clean Power Plan.  Our congregational support will be important to move DNREC and our legislators to make the right decisions for the health of the citizens of our state.

Here are some facts about the CPP from the social justice perspective (environmental racism).
