Join us in Nelson County for a one day workshop to learn about our recent successes and upcoming challenges. The workshop on April 13, 2019, will start at 9am and end at 6pm. The workshop’s focus is to bring citizens up to speed on the current state of the fight against the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and to further inform and educate them on specific pipeline issues. Besides the list of speakers and topics (below), we will have guided tours nearby of the proposed route, exercises on how to protest safely, and a group discussion on the path forward for those opposed to this 7.8 billion dollar boondoggle project.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch and a camp chair to sit in. Box lunches available with advance order – see registration form. Water, comfort station and a first aid tent with emergency phone service will also be available.
The event will take place on Jill and Richard Averitt’s property where the pipeline is proposed to cross. The location is south of Nellysford, VA across from Bold Rock Cider. The event is free – however, we ask all participants to
