End Environmental Racism Now: March With Union Hill

May 17 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

On May 17 and 18, Virginians from all across the state 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. Learn more about the two days of events here.

On Friday, May 17, we will gather in Richmond with William Joseph Barber III, Co-chair of the N.C. Poor People’s Campaign Ecological Justice Committee. (Due to an unavoidable change in his schedule, Rev. William Barber II cannot attend.)

Karenna Gore (Center for Earth Ethics) and Pastor Paul Wilson (Union Grove Baptist Church) will also join us as we march across the Robert E. Lee Bridge 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. We’ll end at the Oregon Hill Overlook for a concert and rally.

11am: Meet at Canoe Run Park (600 W 22nd St, RVA 23225)
Noon: March across the Lee Bridge
1pm: Gather at Oregon Hill Overlook (2nd and Pine Streets, RVA 23220)
Join us for this important event!
