In our last two updates, we have been encouraging folks to attend E-Day tomorrow (Tuesday, March 6) at the Capitol. We’ve had some inquiries about the event and we wanted to let you know that the WV Environmental Council has made the decision to cancel tabling and speakers due to the ongoing teachers’ strike.
Today saw the largest crowds yet, and at one point the Capitol was closed to further visitors due to capacity concerns by Capitol Police and the State Fire Marshall. This is unprecedented.
Of course folks are still welcome to come to the Capitol to distribute literature for their organizations and to lobby their legislators. If you decide to make the trip, arrive early if you can and be prepared to wait in line for at least an hour to get into the building. Also be aware that parking is likely to be more difficult than usual.
If you don’t want to brave the crowds, the GREEN Jam will still be taking place at the Empty Glass starting at 4:30pm.
