Tell Gov. Edwards to stand up for Coast, Not Coal!


Last week, Governor Edwards signed an Executive Order to affirm his commitment to implement Louisiana’s Coastal Master Plan. This is great news for our coast and our communities, and now we need Governor Edwards to act.

For years, coastal communities from Gretna to Ironton have been fighting an out-of-state coal company that is trying to build a coal export terminal in their backyards and on top of a coastal restoration site.

We need Governor Edwards to act on his promise of coastal restoration by joining our communities to stop the RAM coal export terminal. Take action now for coast not coal!

If the RAM coal export terminal is built, communities will face giant exposed coal piles along the Mississippi River, mile-long uncovered coal trains and coal dust pollution. This project is bad for our coast and for our communities - join us and call on Governor Edwards to take a stand for the coast.

If this project goes through it will not only harm communities, but it will also interfere with one of Louisiana's major coastal restoration projects, the Mid-Barataria Sediment Diversion. This restoration project is exactly the kind of project Governor Edwards voiced his commitment to in his Executive Order.

We need Governor Edwards to prioritize Louisiana’s Coastal Master Plan and stop this unnecessary coal export terminal.

Tell Governor Edwards to take action for the coast -- not coal!
