Since we launched our campaign in South Dakota (272 AUMs) in April 2014, we’ve been very busy reaching out and meeting with political representatives and other organizations. We have also been conducting AUM site visits, researching clean up standards, and producing educational materials. In July we took this issue right into the offices of more than 20 members of Congress. We met and educated staff about the decades-long threat that AUMs have posed to our communities and the need for immediate action. We also held a panel discussion and film screening of the upcoming documentary short, “America’s Secret Fukushima." In November we will be in New Mexico for meetings and in Washington, D.C. for the National Summit for a Nuclear Free Future.
We need you to take action today.
We anticipate the introduction of the Uranium Exploration and Mining Accountability Act this year. By bringing this critical issue to the forefront, we believe that we can gain the political support we need to ensure success of this bill.
