Beyond Nuclear is proud to currently serve as the fiduciary agent for the Alliance to Halt Fermi-3.

Beyond Nuclear, along with Citizens for Alternatives to Chemical Contamination (CACC), Citizens Environment Alliance of Southwestern Ontario (CEA), Don't Waste Michigan, and the Sierra Club Michigan Chapter officially intervened against the proposed new Fermi-3 atomic reactor in early 2009, shortly after nuclear utility Detroit Edison filed a combined Construction and Operating License Application (COLA) with the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). Beyond Nuclear welcomes the Alliance to Halt Fermi-3 to this important work!
