Press Conference with Red Terry #StandWithRed

May 7 @ 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm

During his spring 2017 primary campaign, Gov. Northam committed that, should he be elected Governor, he would direct Virginia’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to conduct a full, on the ground, stream-by-stream analysis of the water impacts of the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline and Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Join us for a press conference as we insist that he honor that commitment. We will be joined by other progressive groups and Red and Minor Terry, who have been tree-sitting on their land until very recently. 

As our elected Governor, Northam has the power to require this analysis be conducted before any further construction of the pipelines takes place, and we will call on him to use that power to protect all Virginians.
