From Pipelines to Progress: Virginia unites for jobs, clean energy, and social justice

December 3, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - December 13, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

When it comes to climate change, we’re driving toward a cliff… and Dominion’s at the wheel.

It’s time to take the wheel from Dominion and give the power back to Virginians to steer in the right direction. Here’s how: force fossil fuel companies like Dominion to pay for their pollution and unlock millions of dollars for us to create jobs, save lives, and save money on our energy bills.

Join us for a fun and inspiring evening to learn about Virginia’s biggest climate solution yet: Joining the Regional Greenhouse Initiative. There will be snacks, inspiring speakers, and, of course, you and your neighbors! You’ll leave powered with the information and skills to turn your personal story into action.

This event is taking place at multiple locations throughout Virginia in the first two weeks of December. It is co-sponsored by Virginia Organizing, Citizens Climate Lobby, the Sierra Club Virginia Chapter, Mothers Outfront, Our Climate, Appalachian Voices, Climate Action Alliance of the Valley, and Interspiritual Empowerment Project.
