Rally For Our Planet: No To Pipelines!
September 7, 2018 at 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Arlington Unitarian Universalist Church will host an uplifting rally of various groups allied against the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipelines as part of the RISE for Climate Actions happening all around the world in September.
This event will feature Karenna Gore, Director of the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary, Delegate Sam Rasoul, a member of Virginia’s House of Delegates, and speakers from multiple grassroots advocacy groups — all stressing the importance of protecting our state’s natural environment, clean drinking water, public health and property rights. The two pipelines would carry fracked gas from West Virginia through Virginia (the ACP also extends through North Carolina) destroying pristine land and threatening clean drinking water for generations to come.
Rally for Our Planet is an action standing up for Virginia’s clean water and expressing opposition to dirty fossil fuels projects, liked fracked gas pipelines follows months of intensifying opposition. This action is happening as part of a global effort, with hundreds of actions under the banner of Rise for Climate to highlight increasing climate impacts and the need for real climate leadership.
