We worked with the expanding WV New Jobs Coalition (www.newjobswv.org) on a six-city bus tour called the “WV Summer Jam: For The People, Jobs and CARE-a-van” that kicked off in Huntington and ended in Shepherdstown. All had music, food, fun for kids and a message that we need to bolster our democracy while at the same time creating jobs with a ‘fair transition’ to climate friendly energy and human infrastructure. SEIU-1199, WV Working Families Party, and Sierra Club we’re CAG’s major partners on this tour which also featured local door-to-door canvasses to encourage local residents to reach out to our Senators in support of a Build Back Bolder agenda. You can reach out to our Senators right now by texting WV to 30403! See news coverage Here, Here, and Here. More can be found on the WV New Jobs Facebook page.
