People’s Pipeline Protest – Prayer Vigil

September 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join the People’s Pipeline Protest, September 13-14, 2017, organized by Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN).

Two days of spirited, creative protests at seven key Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) offices statewide to stop two fracked-gas pipelines. Help CCAN say NO at locations in Virginia Beach, Roanoke, Harrisonburg, Richmond, Abingdon, Glen Allen, or Woodbridge.

Wednesday, September 13th – On day one, just after Hurricane Irma is expected to blow through our land, faith leaders and spiritual elders will hold prayer vigils on the public sidewalks outside the DEQ offices in Virginia Beach, Roanoke, Harrisonburg, Richmond, Abingdon, Glen Allen, or Woodbridge. We have interest from spiritual leaders of many faiths, including Christian, Muslim, and indigenous leaders who will offer prayers and meditations for the Governor as he makes a decision of historic consequences very soon. Some venues will include sacred and ancient water ceremonies.

More information, including background information on why we need to do this (do you know about the PH3 trio?).

Locations of the seven DEQ offices around Virginia.
