Starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday September 8, OVEC and other groups will host Ohio River Rising Huntington.
Real climate leadership rises from the grassroots up! Join us in Huntington for one of thousands of rallies in cities and towns around the world to demand that our local leaders commit to building a fossil free world that works for all of us, that puts people and justice before profits. No more stalling, no more delays: it’s time for 100% renewable energy for all. These rallies take place during the time of the Global Climate Action Summit in California.
The Ohio River is endangered by the proposed, benignly named Appalachian Storage Hub (ASH). This proposed petrochemical mega-project would spur second and third waves of fracking, all for manufacturing toxic plastics manufacturing, despite the burgeoning worldwide movement to ban single-use plastics, and the growing research into less toxic alternatives to other forms of plastics.
Come learn more about why you should get involved in opposing ASH and promoting a better vision for our region. Come learn more about climate change impacts in our region and ways we can band together to create a better future for our region.
Join us as we let out local leaders know we don’t want a petrochemical future and hold them to account and demand that they walk the talk on climate action.
If you don’t live near Huntington, you can join or organize your own Rise for Climate Rally in your hometown. Details here.
