Action Needed – Tell Governor Justice to VETO HB4615
House Bill 4615, the anti-protest bill being touted as “criminal infrastructure protection,” is intended to intimidate and silence environmentalists.

What a legislative session it's been! We are so proud of the hard work accomplished by our lobby team, Karan and Kayla, over the past 60 days. They tracked over 300 pieces of legislation, attended countless committee meetings, worked with our membership groups and coalition partners to strategize and advocate for pro-environmental legislation, put together urgent calls to action, and wrote and sent out a newsletter each week.

Thank you from your lobby team!
From me and Kayla to our friends on the West Virginia Environmental Council board, our friends from the member groups, and all of you who helped shore up the work we were doing in the Capitol, a giant THANK YOU!
