PLAC Recieves NEGEF Grant
We are pleased to announce that the Pilgrim Legislative Advisory Coalition (PLAC) has been awarded a $750 grant from the New England Grassroots Environment Fund to further the work they have been doing to educate citizens about the issues involved with nuclear power and to bring sensible public policy to bear regarding the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station. PLAC is grateful to NEGEF for this recognition and funding.
The New England Grassroots Environment Fund energizes and nurtures long-term civic engagement in local initiatives that create and maintain healthy, just, safe and sustainable communities using stories, tools and dollars to fuel local activism and social change. Since 1996, the Grassroots Fund’s core grant making program continues to fund nearly 150 grants annually, giving more than $4 million in 20 years to more than 2,000 community groups and initiatives covering more than 60 percent of New England’s cities and towns.

PLAC is a small, all-volunteer organization and even with the NEGEF grant, we need additional funds to continue educating the public about the dangers of Pilgrim and working with our State legislators to put pressure on Entergy to close Pilgrim and decommission it safely and as quickly as possible.
