Augusta County Coats for Comfort Drive

The Poor Peoples Campaign-Augusta is on the move. Our Coats for Comfort Drive was a success! We spread the word and good people answered the call  from Nov 1-Dec 13th (and because of the generous donations of people like you, the  University of Virginia, and Waynesboro Rotary Club)    150 coats, 200+ pairs of socks, 75 hats, 60 pairs of gloves, and 40 scarves went home with brothers and sisters who need them.   Tonight we delivered to the Valley Mission in Staunton, Va. None of this could have been possible without the thoughtful support of people caring about others..  What a wonderful humbling experience. What a blessing to be a part of the Poor People's Campaign.

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.
