With the proposed development of the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipeline proposals, our team has been helping to alert citizens about ways to engage in fracked gas pipeline issues and express concerns about these risky plans. We drove turnout to the recent series of Federal Energy Regulatory Commission hearings in West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina on the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline and plan to do that again as the same process plays out for the Mountain Valley Pipeline.

Meanwhile, community groups in Virginia that focus on this issue continue to organize and grow, as major rallies in Blacksburg and Richmond attest, and events are already planned for the spring and summer across the area, including film screenings, music festivals and even a pipeline route bike ride. We’ll keep spreading the word, so stay tuned and visit appvoices.org/fracking to learn how to get involved!
