Our movement is building…a people-powered movement!
We may not have been able to stop Trump from taking office, but we can and will continue to fight back against his disastrous policies and executive orders. We have defeated Trump’s attempt to dismantle the ACA not once, not twice but three times…and we are continuing the fight to #ProtectOurCare!
In September, we co-hosted the WV Grassroots Summit – a two-day convening of more than 150 activist leaders from around the state. The trainings and workshops ranged from learning to run for office, to running issue-based campaigns, to impacting elections.
We are organizing, training, and building stronger allies to make sure that opposing forces are matched with organized social justice warriors ready to rise up and demand that working families, children, seniors, those with disabilities, marginalized communities – the people of WV – are put first!
With your support, WV Citizen Action is ready to keep the pressure on Trump, as well as federal and state lawmakers supporting his misogynist, homophobic, racist, anti-worker, and anti-environment agenda. Keep reading for actions you can take now to push back against efforts to repeal the Clean Power Plan, and giving massive, unnecessary tax cuts to billionaires that will force cuts in health care, education and other vital programs.
Our fight isn’t just in Washington. From January to March, WV CAG will be at the WV Legislature to lobby for clean air and water, renewable energy, and a stronger democracy – as well as to fight for new revenue and against extreme cuts to essential social programs.
We will be contacting you as these issues unfold to make citizen lobby calls, visit legislators, and attend rallies. In the meantime, we’ve included actions you can take now to protect West Virginia consumers and save energy efficiency programs.
For over four decades we have been your voice at the Capitol – sending the progressive message that we can have both jobs and a clean environment, that everyone deserves health care, and that millionaires should pay their fair share so our government can operate effectively.
Your gift this year is more important than ever! We are people powered and we cannot do this work without your support, so renew your membership today! If you can, give an additional tax-deductible donation to WV Citizen Action Education Fund.
