Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition
The Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition (IPSEC) is a coalition of environmental, health and public policy organizations, founded in 2001 to address the vulnerability of the nuclear reactors at Indian Point. Over 20 million people live within 50 miles of the plant. Our concerns include both existing radiation releases and potential additional releases from either human error, aging infrastructure or terrorism, and the flawed, unfixable evacuation plan. Our grassroots efforts have enlisted the support of hundreds of local, state and federal officials. IPSEC members are currently fighting the proposed 20-year relicensing of the aging, leaking reactors.
Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS)
NIRS was founded 30 years ago to be the national information and networking center for citizens and environmental activists concerned about nuclear power, radioactive waste, radiation and sustainable energy issues. Since its founding NIRS has added to such things as large-scale organizing and public education campaigns on specific issues, such as preventing construction of new reactors, radioactive waste transportation, deregulation of radioactive materials, and more. NIRS’ international programs and affiliation with WISE (World Information Service on Energy) allows their network to span more than a dozen offices and programs across the globe.
