 You are invited to join us for our urgent fundraising event on Monday, June 30th from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. at the Walter Reade Theater in Lincoln Center 165 West 65th Street , between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue in Manhattan .

Our event will feature the  New York premiere of the award-winning film  Woven Ways which exposes the impacts of uranium mining on the Navajo people. The documentary on Indian Point, Nowhere to Run, will also be screened.  

We must raise $100,000 to cover the expenses associated with the litigation and the Intervenors' actions to oppose a 20 year extension of Entergy's Indian Point nuclear facilities' operating licenses. The Intervenors are PHASE, RCCA, Sierra Club, WEST CAN and Assemblyman Richard Brodsky. This might be the first successful opposition to a re-licensing of a nuclear plant in  US history.  (We are also working with Clearwater , Riverkeeper and the NY State Attorney General.) 20 million people live within 50 miles of Indian Point, in Buchanan NY , which has been routinely releasing forms of radioactive waste into our air and water. Within its vicinity, there are levels of Strontium 90 in the teeth of the children. There is not a feasible emergency evacuation plan in the event of a catastrophe caused by human error, aging infrastructure or terrorism. The nearby watershed is the source of drinking water for New York City . Efficient alternative energy options can supply our electricity needs.   

Your contributions for tickets and donations are tax-deductible.

The suggested contribution for tickets is $25 each. If you would like to donate a different amount, we will greatly appreciate your support.
