Since 2010 Earth Quaker Action Team has urged PNC Bank to stop financing mountaintop removal coal mining, a dangerous practice that blows up mountains, poisons water and destroys Appalachian communities. We invite you to join us on Thursday, July 3rd for prayerful nonviolent direct action, calling on PNC Bank to take responsibility for the lost lives, poisoned streams, destroyed mountains, and continued carbon pollution that result from mountaintop removal coal mining.
