Join Earth Quaker Action Team Thursday, July 3rd in Pittsburgh!

Since 2010 the Earth Quaker Action Team has urged PNC Bank to stop financing mountaintop removal coal mining, a dangerous practice that blows up mountains, poisons water and destroys Appalachian communities. We invite you to join us on Thursday, July 3rd for prayerful nonviolent direct action and worship, calling on PNC Bank to take responsibility for the lost lives, poisoned streams, destroyed mountains, and continued carbon pollution that result from mountaintop removal coal mining.

Quakers of all ages from all over North America will come to Pittsburgh and will be joined by allies from Appalachia, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia.

Please join us!

If you are joining us from the Gathering, talk to us at the field trips table. Buses will leave on Thursday July 3 at 12:30pm, check the Daily Bulletin for details and lunch information.

If you are joining the action directly in Pittsburgh, you can meet us at 1:45pm in either of two locations where  EQAT volunteers will be waiting to meet you. Please bring water and snacks.
  • Agnes R Katz Plaza at 7th St & Penn Ave
  • Mellon Green Plaza at 6th St & Grant St.
