Indian Point closing event
At the end of April, Indian Point’s last reactor will shut down, marking a new era for the Hudson River, the Hudson Valley and the New York City Metropolitan Area. Closing the plant was one of Riverkeeper’s longest and most hard fought battles — spanning decades. This, however, does not mark the end of our Indian Point campaign, as there are immediate issues to address and even more on the horizon regarding safe decommissioning, a just transition for affected workers and communities, environmental justice, and a clean, safe energy future for New York.

Join us on April 30 — the day Indian Point’s Unit 3 reactor is scheduled to shut down for the final time — as our panel discusses these issues and takes questions from the audience. Our panel includes:

U.S. Representative Mondaire Jones, New York’s 17th District
Carlos Garcia, Energy Planner, NYC Environmental Justice Alliance
Laurie Seeman, naturalist and environmental educator, Strawtown Studio
Paul Gallay, Riverkeeper President
Manna Jo Greene, Environmental Director, Hudson River Sloop Clearwater
Phillip Musegaas, Vice President of Programs and Litigation at Potomac Riverkeeper Network
Richard Webster, Legal Program Director, Riverkeeper

National Geographic filmmaker Jon Bowermaster will be the emcee for the evening’s event and will present his 2013 short film, The Long Shadow of Indian Point.
