On July 23, Virginia Organizing will join more than 60 other student, faith, social justice, and environmental groups from all across Virginia to tell Governor Terry McAuliffe that we need a better plan to stop harmful carbon emissions, take away the power of big polluters over our public interest, and invest in clean energy in our state. We need real leadership from the governor on solar panels, clean air and water, and climate justice!
You can learn all the details of the March on the Mansion and sign up by clicking here. We even have buses and vans coming from all parts of Virginia to make it easier for you to stand up for environmental justice.
I moved out of one of the most flooded cities into one of the most air polluted cities in Virginia and know the harmful effects of environmental damage. I have witnessed sea level rise and know the damage that flooding causes for our communities. I know that we need to act now to prevent more damage and change the course of environmental destruction.
Join me and hundreds of other Virginians on Saturday, July 23 from 12-3 p.m. in Richmond to demand that our government stop supporting big corporate polluters and start focusing on the needs of people directly affected by these harmful policies.
We’ve sent thousands of petitions, shown up at public events, and invited the Governor to tour our threatened homes, asking him to protect our land, air, and water, and to be a champion of truly clean energy. Our voices have not been heard yet — so we’re bringing those voices together right at his doorstep.
