Ways to Get Involved with NEIS

Twelve Simple Things you can do

NEIS has prepared a simple list of a dozen small actions that you can take to help us protect the health, safety and finances of Illinois residents from the Nuclear Industry. Its all here on a list that you can download!


If you want a less-nuclear world, YOU will have to support one! NEIS needs your support and membership to continue the work towards a non-nuclear future based on energy efficiency and safer alternatives to nuclear power. If you can afford to pay the energy polluters once every month, you can afford the cost of a membership to a group dedicated to stopping their pollution once per year. For the price of one cup of gourmet coffee per month, help prevent the next Chernobyl from happening. Become a member TODAY!

Help Oppose the Unsafe Waste Dump at Yucca Mountain

The propopsed nuclear waste storage facility at Yucca Mountain, NV is sited in a geologically active area close to Las Vegas. The Bush administration has broken its campaign promises, and is trying to force this through despite scientific evidence that it is not a good idea. Public Citizen has an online petition you can sign to oppose this madness.

Call attention to the Terrorism Risk at Nuclear Reactors

Many Nuclear Reactors - including 4 of the 14 that Excelon operates in Illinois - are particularly vulnerable to terrorism. The NRC has refused to take action on this matter.
