With their recent vote against selling water to Hallador Energy and Sunrise Coal’s proposed mine in Vermilion County, the Homer Village Board has taken an important first step towards protecting area land and water resources from coal pollution.
We know that there is still a long fight ahead, but this marks a major milestone in our campaign for clean water and healthy farms. Although there is still much work ahead to keep this coal mine out, we’d like to pause and recognize just how far we have come. This victory shows that together, we can make a positive difference in our communities.
Please join us as we celebrate this crucial victory, thank our supporters, and look ahead to the future.
