Save the date for the People’s Climate March on Monday February 23rd!
There will be a day of activities and a march. Like No ACP on facebook or follow on twitter for updates and we will try to keep updates on the Wingnut page as well.
Take a stand against fracking, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, and many many other dangerous and climate damaging projects that folks like Dominion Power/Resources and other greedy jerks are pushing for.
Renewable resources are what we need to create a healthy, sustainable environment for everyone in Virginia.

The #blacklivesmatter demands to Richmond City Council pointed out important facts about the disproportionate rates of asthma in communities of color. And environmental racism and classism mean that the folks bearing the most negative weight from fossil fuels will be folks already dealing with the most oppression.

Renewable resources could lead to greater self sufficiency, independence, and cheaper utilities for everyone in Virginia if done well.

Stay tuned, Richmond is on the move this year and we are all a part of the intersectional movement to a better world.
