Rolling Beyond Coal In the Lone Star State


The weekend before Thanksgiving, the Sierra Club's Texas Beyond Coal campaign held events in nine Texas cities: Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Lubbock, College Station, Edinburg, Abilene, and Corpus Christi.

All but the Houston and Austin events were volunteer-led, and Lone Star Chapter volunteers played a major role in those cities as well. Activities included Roll Beyond Coal bike rallies, Stroll Beyond Coal walks—even a Surf Beyond Coal event.

Petition signatures were gathered at each event, and media coverage was extensive. Read samples here and here.


Austin-based Sierra Club apprentice Flavia de la Fuente, above, gives kudos to Club organizers Eva Hernandez, Oliver Bernstein, and Donna Hoffman, online organizers Mike Grenetz and Stacey Kawakami, and administrative coordinators Shelly Campbell and Adrienne Frazier "for cutting through the red tape."
