Across the country the energy economy is shifting. Coal fired plants are closing due to lack of growth in electricity demand and noncompetitive prices. As a result of this shift, there are impacts to private and public sector jobs, and the communities where these plants are located.

The tour will include a visit to a coal fired power plant in the decommissioning process, and demonstrate a joint campaign built between a local environmental justice organization and organized labor in response to the retirement.

All bus tours will depart at 2pm at Cleveland Circle and return before 4pm.
