March 28, 2019 marks the 40th Annversary of the Three Mile Island accident. It woke up millions to the dangers of nuclear power and remains one of the largest nuclear disasters in the world. But the terrible impacts of the partial meltdown, explosion, and releases of radiation on communities around TMI have always been downplayed, ignored, and simply covered up.
Survivors and community members are gathering to commemorate the accident over the next week, with events, activities, and protests in Harrisburg, PA and the surrounding area.
Join us for a live national telebriefing to commemorate TMI:
Wednesday, April 3 from 8-9:30pm Eastern
(7pm Central / 6pm Mountain / 5pm Pacific)
Click here to register.
We will have a full report on the anniversary events and the legacy of TMI with three veterans of the front lines of the nuclear disaster:
• Eric Epstein, Three Mile Island Alert – grassroots organization founded two years before the accident
• Aileen Mioko Smith, Green Action Japan – co-author of Three Mile Island: The People’s Testament
• Arnie Gundersen, Fairewinds Energy Education – nuclear engineer and expert on the TMI accident
The presentation will be followed by Q&A with the audience.
The event is free and open to the public, and we welcome your questions, comments, and remembrances.
We aim for half presentation, and half questions and comments. After you register, you will receive an email message with the call-in number. This is a telephone event, and you do not need a computer to participate. Long distance phone call charges may apply.
If you are not able to join, we will have a recording posted on our website the next day.
Thanks for all you do!
