Dominion Shareholders Meeting, May 9, 2018

Dominion’s annual shareholders meeting will take place in Richmond on Wednesday May 9, 2018.  Dust off your protestin’ props and join Virginia Pipeline Resisters, your friends, and your neighbors the morning of Wednesday May 9th in Richmond! We’ll send a message to Dominion’s shareholders and executives like CEO Thomas Farrell, it’s time to drop the act and invest in clean energy now!

On May 9, 2018, gather at 9am at the corner of 3rd and Marshall street. At 10:30 am everyone will march to Festival Park and assemble for a press conference and rally with some amazing speakers!

Gather in groups on the sidewalk to arrange ourselves into 4 sections:

  1. Political Corruption–From the General Assembly to the Department of Environmental Quality Dominion’s dirty politics threaten our democracy. Bring your best props to highlight political corruption! Dress like your favorite Dominion owned politician or bring a sign showing how much Dominion money your legislator has taken.
  2. Environmental Destruction–From coal ash to pipelines to fracked gas Dominion’s dirty power threatens our climate, air, land, and water. Bring your best props to highlight Dominion’s dirty environmental impacts–Bring a giant pipeline, a jar of water you want to protect, wear rubber boots to symbolize sea level rise, or put it all on a sign!
  3. Moral Obligation–Time after time, issue after issue, Dominion’s words and deeds show that company leadership is morally bankrupt. Are you a person of faith or just someone who thinks companies who receive public benefit should act in the public good? Then this is the spot for you! Bring your signs, banners, and props that call on Dominion to do what’s right.
  4. Economic Exploitation–Dominion’s greed costs consumers millions of dollars and stifles the clean energy economy. Join this section to help show that it’s not all about trees and critters, it’s about pocketbook issues too! From Dominion overcharging customers to suppressing clean energy there are real economic costs to the company’s actions.
