Virginians For Justice: PROGRESS NOT PIPELINES!


On May 17 and 18, Virginians from all across the commonwealth will unite in common cause to oppose unjust and unneeded fracked-gas pipelines anywhere in the commonwealth, and to stand in solidarity for environmental justice and the climate.  

We’ll be joined by Rev. William Barber, II of Repairers of the Breach and Poor Peoples’ Campaign, and Karenna Gore, author and director of the Center for Earth Ethics, and other speakers.

Join us for one or both events!  

May 17, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Richmond

“End Environmental Racism Now: March With Union Hill”

Join members of the Union Hill community and others as we rally with Rev. William Barber, II in Richmond. We’ll march across the Robert E. Lee Bridge along the same route where 51 years ago, almost to the day, civil rights activists marched during Martin Luther King, Jr.’s historic  Poor People’s Campaign for economic justice. This year, we’ll be marching for environmental justice in Union Hill, a historic black community in Buckingham County targeted for a massive compressor station, and to stop all fracked-gas infrastructure in the state.

RSVP to this important event in Richmond on May 17!

May 18, 1 p.m. – 3 p.m., Leesburg

“Herring, Stand with Appalachia: No Mountain Valley Pipeline”

We’ll be rallying at the Leesburg Courthouse to call on Attorney General Mark Herring to halt work on the Mountain Valley Pipeline, to pursue his lawsuit against MVP to its fullest without a settlement, and to affirm the state’s authority to revoke the project’s certification. Speakers include Karenna Gore, Delegate Sam Rasoul, Delegate Chris Hurst, Professor Emily Hammond of George Washington University, as well as landowners and organizers from along the proposed pipeline route.

RSVP to this important event in Leesburg on May 18!
