“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.
