West Virginians, Act Now For the Water!
If you’ve been following the news, you know that legislators have been placing the desires of big polluters above the needs of ordinary West Virginians. Our good friends at West Virginia Rivers Coalition have posted a concise background on what’s been going on here, and easy way to take action here. Please follow the links and take a few minutes to contact your state senators right now.
Learn more about this and other issues at E-Day!
Join Us For E-Day! at the State Capitol
Join E-Day! starting at 9:30 a.m. in the Upper Rotunda outside the House Chamber and the Senate Chamber. Besides all the tables, we’ll have speakers and a press conference, so there’s loads of opportunities to learn more about the issues we face, the bills we support, and the bills that should not make it to the Governor’s desk. After all that, at 5:30 that evening, come continue the networking and mix in some celebrating at E-Council’s Green Jam at the Empty Glass.
We do hope you will stop by OVEC’s table to get updated on our current work, including our Pro-Democracy/ Fair Courts work and the issue of the proposed petrochemical hub. Speaking of that, did you catch the recent op-ed on this issue by OVEC volunteer Mary Wildfire? if not, do read it: One problem with petro storage hub everyone is missing
If you’d like to volunteer for an hour or so at OVEC’s table, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org right away.
