PetitionCall to Action

IP Evacuation Hearings!

With all the media coverage and international attention given to the unspeakable disaster in Fukushima, Japan, and the lasting memory of the terrorist attacks on New York on September 11, 2001, little or nothing has been done to address Indian Point's inadequate and unworkable evacuation plan.


Assemblywoman Naomi Rivera, Bronx, takes the welfare of her constituents and the region seriously. She is calling for the NY State Assembly to investigate the effectiveness of current Indian Point evacuation planning and address its deficiencies.

 

 

After you sign the petition, please respond to the confirmation email you receive so that your signature will be verified. Thank you.
