Hands Across the Potomac

October 14, 2017 @ 12:00 pm

On Saturday October 14, we’ll join hand-in-hand with hundreds of concerned West Virginia and Maryland residents to span a bridge over the Potomac River. Together, we’ll send a powerful message to Governor Hogan and our elected leaders urging them to stop TransCanada from building a fracked-gas pipeline underneath our treasured Potomac River.

Here are the details:

What: Hands Across the Potomac: A show of solidarity between West Virginia and Maryland opposing the Potomac Pipeline for fracked gas
When: Saturday, October 14th, 2017 at noon
Where: Sherpherd University campus lot C, then James Rumsey Bridge, Sharpsburg, Maryland
Who: West Virginia landowners, elected officials, environmental and social justice advocates — and you!

Please RSVP here!

Directions and Parking:

You may park in lots C or K on the Shepherd University campus, lots adjacent to Shepherd’s Ram Stadium. When approaching from N. Duke Street, turn onto N. King Street to enter the parking lot.
GPS directions: Ram Stadium, WV-480, Shepherdstown, WV 25443

Our meeting point is a few steps away on the grassy knoll on North King Street, next to Erma Ora Byrd Hall. From there, we will march together to the James Rumsey Bridge (a 5-10 minute walk) which sits over the Potomac River. Please RSVP HERE!
