Power Past Coal

Coal mines aren’t just taking a toll on our climate, they’re producing orange clouds of toxic pollution—putting clean air and communities at risk throughout the nation. Guardians has called on the U.S. Office of Surface Mining to adopt a rule prohibiting these poisonous billows that form when mines use explosives. We continue to expose the true cost of dirty coal.

End the War on Wildlife

The USDA’s Wildlife Services wildlife killing program slaughters  millions of wild animals every year, costing taxpayers tens of millions in federal funds. Wolves, bears, river otters, and prairie dogs are just some of their victims. We’re ready to end this war on wildlife. Join us and ask your congresspeople to defund this out-of-control program.
