Honor the memory of an anti-nuclear matriarch by urging Congress to do its job agaisnt radioactive risks

Mary Sinclair, a Michigan-based reactor slayer, radioactive waste dump stopper, and defender of the Great Lakes against radioactive reactor and waste risks, passed away on Jan. 14th at the age of 92, after devoting decades of her life to anti-nuclear activism. Beyond Nuclear has posted a memorial statement on its website. Please help honor the memory of this respected and beloved anti-nuclear leader by doing what she did so well, by challenging the out-of-control nuclear power industry by courageously speaking truth to power. Contact your two U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative as they return to work for the new congressional session. Call their offices via the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Urge that they do their job to protect the lives, health, safety, security, environment, and taxpayer dollars of their constituents, as by blocking any additional federal loan guarantees for new reactors or uranium enrichment facilities. While they're at it, they should strenuously exercise their congressional oversight on the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and rein in the rogue nuclear power industry before it causes a BP Gulf of Mexico scale disaster, only this time with a radioactive twist.
