No new drilling in the Gulf

Continuing to lease for oil and gas in the Gulf puts coastal communities and businesses at further risk, and is at odds with recent progress by Congress to cut carbon emissions and promote clean energy.



Tell Congress to reject the side deal

Congressional representatives are considering a dirty side deal that would strip longstanding permitting protections for communities and force the completion of the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP). This unwanted gas pipeline threatens public health and our region’s water and land, in addition to jeopardizing climate progress Congress just moved forward 


Keep Virginia Scenic

Rolling ridges. Sparkling streams. More than 150 miles of trails. Creating Shenandoah Mountain National Scenic Area would permanently protect this breathtaking landscape in the George Washington National Forest so that it can be enjoyed for generations to come.


Speak Out for Environmental Justice

Urge your elected officials to support the Environmental Justice for all Act, the most far-reaching Congressional bill yet to address the outsize burdens low-wealth and communities of color face when it comes to pollution and other environmental harms.
