Action: Stop HERC – Let Minneapolis Breathe – Tuesday, August 15, 1 p.m.

submitted by

The campaign to shut down HERC is now entering a more public and critical phase. We invite you to join next Tuesday August 15 at 1:00pm at the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners meeting in downtown Minneapolis.

Please RSVP so we can send updates about the event, county meeting rules, and our demands:

This is an important action– the most important for people to join so far in this campaign. A wide range of people will speak directly to the commissioners, including: doctors, union leaders, scientists, teachers, waste workers and experts, and impacted community members. We need to back them. If we create enough pressure now, we can compel the county commissioners to set in motion HERC’s closure. County staff are already preparing a closure plan because of our work this last legislative session. Now we need these elected commissioners to ensure there’s a date attached to that plan.
