The Stand with Union Hill Concert of Prayer on December 18, 2018, was an interfaith prayer vigil to bring protection against the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline compressor station in Union Hill on the eve an important meeting by the Air Pollution Control Board.

But on December 19, 2018, the Air Pollution Control Board and the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality dodged valid legal challenges to their procedure, outrage over Governor Northam’s recent stacking of board members in Dominion’s favor, and the presence of over 150 concerned citizens, by not voting and by declaring a new public comment period, limited in time and scope, for the proposed ACP compressor station at Union Hill.

Help turn this setback into a victory by signing the petition.

At 54,000 horsepower, the proposed compressor station, a giant, even by industry standards, has been sited in the center of an historic African American freedman community on a former slave plantation and represents a stark example of environmental injustice.
