Please join us at a hearing sponsored by Philadelphia’s Air Management Services (AMS). It’s about approving SEPTA’s gas power plant in Nicetown.
AMS has said they want to hear us. And we need AMS to deny a permit for SEPTA’s gas plant.
Several of us plan to testify why AMS should reject the plant. We’ll be asking critical questions, including challenging SEPTA’s assertions. We also plan to deliver written comments from folks who cannot attend.
When: Tuesday June 27, 2017
The hearing begins at 6pm. We will gather for a brief rally outside at 5:30, and then go in together. Feel free to join us at any time! For last minute updates, see the Facebook event page.
Where: Panati Playground
3100 N 22nd St, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19132
We encourage you to submit a written comment as well.
Write in your own words, or use our canned response. Our City’s own Air Management Services must know that the people don’t want a gas plant. Not in Nicetown. Not anyplace. That a gas plant is fossil fuel infrastructure, and bad for people and other living things at this late stage of our planet’s fever.
You can find background and sample comments here.
If you would like to make a statement during the hearing, we’d be glad to help you prepare. Please contact us at email@example.com.
