Stop Coal Ash Dumping Prayer Vigil
The Moncure/Brickhaven communities are fighting Duke's coal ash dump that is planned for their neighborhoods. This is a very short distance from the proposed dump. Triangle WILPF members joined the weekly picket line of the Moncure Plywood workers every week for over a year – now this same community is under attack and needs our support again.
