Virginia

Together, we can create a healthy climate today.

The world is starting to understand that we must act now to address climate change.

The current Administration:

  • Has pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement.
  • Is dismantling the Clean Power Plan.
  • Is doubling down on building new fossil fuel infrastructure.

Even though Virginia’s coastline and cities are more vulnerable to the effects of climate change than anywhere else in the country besides New Orleans, it still lags far behind many other states in implementing progressive climate policies.

We have a short but real window of time to act. We have the knowledge, skills, and much of the technology we need to keep the Earth’s temperature from rising to catastrophic levels.


We're mothers working together to help mothers develop child-centered solutions around switching to clean energy and creating a livable climate.

Join a Local Team!

Our movement is led by our local teams of dedicated volunteers, who determine their community's needs and choose their own goals. We empower them with training, coaching, and ideas to move their communities and states from dirty to clean energy.

Team members come together to learn, strategize, meet with elected and business leaders, testify at hearings, and plan and show up at rallies and other events. At the same time, they add to their team – and their power – by hosting house parties and engaging new people.

Our teams welcome volunteers at all levels - from those who feel called to help build a local team to those who only have time to sign a petition or attend an event. Knowing that it will take everyone to create a sustainable future for all children, we all do what we can.

    Neighbors come together at pipeline resistance meeting - Norfolk

    One of the biggest challenges we all face is making sure community members are aware of fossil fuel infrastructure work in their neighborhoods. Virginia activists are bringing everyone together to keep people informed.

    Members of the Berkley and South Norfolk communities listened intently as panelists spoke about why two pipelines are a danger to the community. The meeting was organized by three organizations: The Chesapeake Pipeline Resistance, Mothers Out Front and The Chesapeake Climate Action Network, to bring an open and honest discussion about the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and the Southside Connector Pipeline.

    "We passed the construction coming into the neighborhood," said Kim Miller with Mothers Out Front. Miller said she moved into the neighborhood recently and discovered many of her neighbors don't know what's happening. "Our streets are being diverted. People are thinking they're fixing the roads. I don't think Virginia Natural Gas was doing enough to educate their community they were putting natural gas in their backyards."
