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.

    Pipelines Threaten Hampton Roads Communities

     

    A pipeline intended to transmit natural gas from the fracked shale fields of West Virginia has been under construction in our locale this summer. The nine-mile “Southside Connector,” owned by Southern Company/Virginia Natural Gas utility, will traverse the cities of Norfolk and Chesapeake, bordering two schools in the first city and five in the second. In Norfolk, the pipeline runs along streets lined with high density apartment buildings, a theater, and churches, along predominantly low income African-American neighborhoods, until it reaches Harbor Park Stadium. There it will cross under the Elizabeth River, emerge at Colonna’s Shipyard, and run through Berkley, along residential streets, and by churches, city parks and the Boys and Girls Club. In Chesapeake, it navigates more suburban streets, still predominantly African American. In that city, it largely runs through existing Dominion Energy utility easements that are home to electric transmission lines that pass behind rows and rows of houses.
