    Halloween Rally for Climate Action

    There’s nothing scarier than climate change and its debilitating impacts. From devastating floods and deadly heat waves to the health and economic costs of inaction, climate change is deeply affecting our West Virginia communities. Join us Saturday, October 30 from 1 to 2:30 p.m, for a HALLOWEEN RALLY for CLIMATE ACTION, in front of the Robert C. Byrd Federal Courthouse Building, 300 Virginia St. E., in downtown Charleston WV. Our goal is to let Senator Joe Manchin hear a wide variety of West Virginian voices, urging him to protect our land and people by standing with clean energy. We’ll have music, speakers, a climate action opportunity, a photo booth to send a climate message and more. We’ll hear a virtual address to the rally from Dr. Michael E. Mann, one of the world’s leading climate scientists.

    Note: Masks and vaccines are strongly encouraged.

    Parking:There are lots of parking spaces in the nearby Town Center Mall parking garage and on local streets.

    The Army Corps of Engineers will be holding virtual public hearings on the Mountain Valley Pipeline for residents in West Virginia and Virginia.

    These hearings are on the pipeline’s request to cross streams and wetlands – which means activities that dredge stream beds, dam creeks, drill under rivers, and destroy wetland soils.

    Read our fact sheet on the virtual public hearing and example comments.

    Don’t allow industry to speak for you! We need to show the Army Corps that West Virginians and Virginians have valid concerns about the water quality implications of the pipeline. We can guarantee that the pipeline company, and proponents of the oil and gas industry will speak during the hearing. Don’t let them be the only voice! 

    You must preregister to join the virtual public hearing. To register:

    Email CELRP-MVP@usace.army.mil with subject “RSVP to Speak at West Virginia Public Hearing” or “RSVP to Speak at Virginia Public Hearing” include your full name, email address, and contact phone number with area code. 

    Worried about what to expect during the hearing? We’ve got you covered! We’ll be holding a public hearing prep session on October 26 at 7:30PM.

    During the prep session we’ll share information on:

    • how virtual public hearings work, 
    • what to expect during the hearing,
    • how to prepare your comments, and

    what happens after the hearing is over.
