In addition, Carl Lundgren, Chair of Update on Shutting Down Indian Point, will give an update on the movement to close the Indian Point Nuclear Power Facility. In the NYC Council, there is a resolution (0694-2015) calling on the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission not to relicense Indian Point 2 and Indian Point 3, so that those reactors will cease operations. It also calls on New York State to work with affected workers, local officials, and environmental groups to develop and implement a socially, economically, and environmentally just transition plan to address the needs of displaced employees and affected local communities.
This program is open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
Doors open at 6:15 pm. The program will start promptly at 6:45 pm.
