Curious about the efforts to potentially site small modular nuclear reactors in Southwest Virginia? Join us next week at an open forum that will provide information and allow residents to voice any questions or concerns you may have about nuclear energy in our region.
Small Nuclear Reactor Forum
Norton Community Center
201 Park Ave., NE
Wednesday, Oct. 25 from 6-7:30 p.m.
This event is sponsored by The Clinch Coalition, Alliance for Appalachia, Appalachian Peace Education Center, Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards and the Wise County Chapter of Virginia Organizing. We will be joining representatives from these groups on the panel.
“This town hall will provide an opportunity for Southwest Virginians to collectively be heard,” says Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards President Terran Young. Attendees will also have a chance to hear from Terry Lodge, an environmental lawyer who represents citizen groups opposing nuclear power and its radioactive waste.
We hope to see you in Norton on Wednesday, Oct. 25!
