BENEFITING: Ohio Citizen Action Education Fund
EVENT DATE: Aug 04, 2017
The man in the middle facing the camera in my new photo is my Uncle Larry, who is retiring this year from a lifetime of mining. It's super dangerous work, he's lost some workers in an explosion, and even though he's made it to the end, he's still going to have to be regularly checked for health issues once he's retired. He and his family support me in this event every year, because they want wind and solar instead of coal, so help me shut this kind of unsafe work down. It's not romantic. It's not America. It's not worth it. $25 or more gets you in to see the show, and I'm singing some good ones. I promise to make you proud. Thanks for supporting this event and my effort to end my family's legacy in the mines.
I've done this event every single year because of how important it is to me. Ohio Citizen Action is fighting for clean air and energy in Ohio, and as a gal that ended up in Ohio because of coal, I'm happy to help every year to keep future family members safe and out of the shafts, as well as keeping the tops on our mountains. Poisoned air and water, blown out windows in impoverished areas are not ok when there are clean, renewable energy options available. Please help me make this happen for our state. I'll be singing my heart out for you on August 4!!
