VLLW wasn’t the only nuclear waste battle we fought this year. Along with an army of grassroots organizations and individuals, we’ve been fighting against the licensing of so-called “interim” nuclear waste storage facilities in Texas and New Mexico. As usual, the industry is targeting Indigenous and Hispanic communities in their waste storage plans.
These and similar battles against nuclear waste take time, effort, and resources. That’s why your support for the Who’s Protecting Us? campaign is so critical: It will allow us to take this fight directly to the NRC and Congress.
Please make a year-end contribution to the Who’s Protecting Us? campaign today. Your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous donor.
Whether you contribute or not, please share the Who’s Protecting Us? campaign widely with your friends and family. The dangers of nuclear power are real, and we need our leaders to protect us.
Wishing you all the best in the new year,
The NIRS Team
