Why Union Hill Is Environmental Racism

The two ACP fracked gas pipelines being pushed through Virginia would more than double the greenhouse gas emissions for the state. This is being proposed at a time when the scientific community insists that we must reduce methane emissions by 35% in order to leave our children a sustainable future. 

Solar power plants are common in North Carolina and Maryland. Virginia has more dirty fuel: petroleum, natural gas, coal and bio-mass plants. 

Why doesn't Dominion Energy install a large, solar plant in Union Hill instead?

Social justice groups,clean energy advocates, and state legislators joined Food & Water Watch at the Capitol to announce visionary legislation to move Off Fossil Fuels (OFF) by 2035 in Virginia, as well as a new historical assessment of Dominion Energy’s power grab in the state of Virginia.

Video: June 23rd DC Rally

They came to march; they came to sing. They came on buses, in caravans and carpools from New Mexico, New York, New Jersey, Ohio and all parts of the country with poor people.

This is Week 5 of the Poor People's Campaign: 40 Days or Moral Revival. The theme this week is Everybody's Got a Right to Live. On Tuesday, June 12th (Primary Election Day in Virginia) striking Didlake workers were again on the picket line; however today they were joined by fellow Virginians supporting their cause. Among those supporters joining them was Rev. William Barber of the National Poor People's Campaign. Rev. Barber introduced himself to every worker standing on the picket line and then had some words to share.

Too Disabled to Form a Union

The workers at Didlake went on strike three weeks ago when their employer refused to recognize their vote to form a union. Didlake, whose stated mission is to “enrich the lives of people with disabilities,” is forbidding its own employees from unionizing because they were hired through a federal program for disabled workers.
