About this Event

On April 22, 2020, our community defeated a proposal at the East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) Board meeting to accept PG&E’s offer of nuclear energy from its Diablo Canyon power plant. The vote of 10-5 against the proposal came after 64 community members spoke out against accepting nuclear energy into our energy mix.

However, EBCE staff has once again proposed accepting PG&E’s nuclear energy. This time the issue is being framed as using relatively low cost nuclear energy to rescue EBCE’s Brilliant 100 product (100% carbon-free), which some East Bay cities lean on to reduce their city’s GHG emissions, at least on paper.

The EBCE Board will vote on this new proposal on Wednesday, November 18, 2020. Please save the date and join us for this critical fight against nuclear energy.

For decades California communities have been fighting back against Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant and its many risks. In indigenous desert-rural communities, people are resisting the mining of uranium and the dumping of nuclear waste. Join us for a very special webinar panel on the battle against nuclear energy—a false solution to climate change that derails us from a just transition to clean renewable energy.

Webinar Panel Featuring:

Leona Morgan is a young Diné activist and organizer, from the Navajo nation fighting uranium mining and nuclear dumping in New Mexico

Jill ZamEk of Mothers For Peace a longtime anti-nuke movement group in San Luis Obispo, home of PG&E’s Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant

Robert Gould President of the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility and Board Member of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War

Dan Hirsch retired Director of the Program on Environmental and Nuclear Policy at the University of California, Santa Cruz and President of the Committee to Bridge the Gap, a 50-year-old nonprofit organization focused on nuclear issues
