WV Groups Comment on WV VS EPA

WHEN & WHERE: On Thursday, July 14th, the WV Climate Alliance, and speakers from several member organizations, will be hosting a virtual press conference/webinar at 1PM to discuss the real impacts of the WV vs EPA ruling by the United States Supreme Court.

To register for this event, go to: 


WHY: At a time when severe weather events are a weekly occurrence all across the nation and here in West Virginia, and science is telling us that Climate Change is now upon us, we must speak out to say that Attorney General Morrisey does not speak for us.

WHO: Speakers will include…

  • Lucia Valentine, Outreach Coordinator, WV Environmental Council
  • Kristen Olsen, Community member
  • Lakiesha Lloyd, Climate Justice Organizer, Common Defense
  • Gary Zuckett, Executive Director, WV Citizen Action Group
  • Rev. Jeff Allen, Executive Director, West Virginia Council of Churches

WHAT: Morgan King, Climate Campaign Coordinator of WV Rivers Coalition, will moderate the press conference, and the end of the conference will be open to the press for questions.



FOUNDED in 2020, the WEST VIRGINIA CLIMATE ALLIANCE is a broad-based coalition of almost 20 environmental organizations, faith-based, civil rights and civic organizations, and other groups with a focus on climate change. Members of the Alliance work together to provide science-based education on climate change to West Virginia citizens and policymakers.
