This week, the Sierra Club and its allies helped turn out more than 100 people to attend a public hearing on an air permit renewal for the Valley coal plant, which is located in downtown Milwaukee. Attendees voiced universal support for cleaning up the plant and a heavy concern for environmental justice, given the plant's location in a densely populated, lower-income area. The hearing came after the Sierra Club and Clean Wisconsin successfully sued the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to stop delaying action on the permit.
