NEIS’s Mission Statement:
Nuclear Energy Information Service is a non-profit organization
committed to ending nuclear power.
To accomplish this end, NEIS:
- Educates, activates and organizes the public on energy issues.
- Builds and mobilizes grass roots power and nonviolent opposition to nuclear power.
- Advocates sustainable and ecologically-sound energy alternatives.
Through the application of nonviolent and democratic principles NEIS is determined to end nuclear power in Illinois, in the Great Lakes Bioregion, and on Planet Earth.
As part of its ongoing program, NEIS provides the following services to the public:
Quick, Easy Access to Information:
Our staff will provide answers to questions about nuclear energy, alternative energy, nuclear waste, conservation, and other energy-related issues, either over the phone or in writing. NEIS also provides referral service to organizations and agencies specializing in these areas.
Our trained speakers have addressed school audiences from grade 2 up to graduate school. They are available to come out to school, business, church, or other organization functions to speak on topics relating to nuclear power and alternative energy. Print, audio, and visual materials may also supplement the presentation. NEIS also is prepared to train individuals interested in public speaking on nuclear power and alternative energy issues. A modest fee is requested for this service.
NEIS News — the Energy Newsletter:
Our newsletter, NEIS News, is free as a premium of membership to NEIS. It provides information on and analyses of current topics relating to nuclear power; updates on legislation and literature; and a calendar of events. It is one of the few activist newsletters in the nation dealing exclusively with the nuclear power issue.
Research Data Base:
NEIS has developed an extensive library and data base on nuclear related issues. The data base is non-lending, and is available to the public during business hours, weekdays, by appointment.
Focus for Grassroots Action:
In addition to the ongoing, educational aspects of our program, NEIS is also actively involved in important issues pertaining to nuclear power, and offers the opportunity for individuals and organizations to become actively involved through such activities as volunteer work, non-paying internships or work-study programs for students. NEIS will provide orientation, literature, and organizing for you and your group members on such topics nuclear safety, nuclear wastes, alternative energy and recycling, rate-hikes, and global warming.
