How you can help us stop ATC's Cardinal-Hickory Creek Transmission Line

1. Driftless Defenders needs on-going help to raise public awareness and we need to maintain pressure by constantly keeping the CHC issue in the public eye. You can help in the following ways:

Spread the word wherever you drive or park by displaying our free 6” circle or 3” x 10” rectangle magnetic stickers on your vehicles. Contact outreach@DriftlessDefenders.com

Spread the word wherever you walk, work, and shop by pinning free NoATC.com metal buttons on your clothing, backpacks, etc. Contact outreach@DriftlessDefenders.com

Tell people about the impending transmission lines and give them our trifold brochure that contains a map and good information. Contact outreach@DriftlessDefenders.com or print your own downloadable here.

Write a Letter to the Editor. Download newspaper addresses here.

Contact legislators. Download names and addresses here.

2. Time-sensitive ways you can help with the PSC review process are listed on our Updates page. We will notify you of opportunities to make oral comments at public meetings and tell you where you can send written comments.

3. We need volunteers for our Outreach activities such as staffing information tables, participating in parades and public events, helping organize our public information meetings, posting flyers in public establishments.  A sampling of some of our activities are included in the slide show below.

Volunteers enjoy meeting each other and feel good about becoming involved.
