Resist the Pipelines with Appalachian Voices
July 26, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Virginians have an opportunity to defeat the two proposed fracked-gas pipelines- the Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast pipelines – that would cut across our state, through 900 miles through pristine forests, farms, and wetlands and cross (and potentially contaminate) thousands of headwater streams and rivers. Inter-state pipelines require approval at both the federal and state level. As Virginia residents, we can engage in the state-level Clean Water Act certification process to discourage the VA Department of Environmental Quality from providing a permit to pipeline builders to destroy our Virginia waterways. Our window for voicing our concerns and recommendations at the state level is quickly closing. Appalachian Voices will present a brief overview of the proposed pipelines and detail direct actions we can take right now and in the coming month to make our opinions heard to the state. Come learn more about how we can defeat the pipeline on Wednesday July 26th at 6:30 pm at the Jefferson Room at the Central Library Charlottesville.
