Our friends and neighbors in the Charleston have an opportunity to rally against AG Jeff Sessions, Rep. Alex Mooney, and Patrick Morrisey, and attend a one-time special screening of An Inconvenient Sequel.
“West Virginia Over Washington” Rally
On Thursday, September 21, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, our Congressman Alex Mooney and WV Attorney General Patrick Morrisey will be keynoting a conference called “West Virginia on the Rise: Rebuilding the Economy, Rebuilding Lives.”
While they’re patting each other on the back inside, we’ll be outside to say “We Deserve Better!”
Congressman Mooney voted earlier this year for a healthcare bill that would have taken away health care from over 170,000 West Virginians. He has failed at his most basic job responsibility of listening to his constituents’ concerns – he has not held a single town hall meeting in his district this year.
US Attorney General Jeff Sessions supports policies that favor criminalization, rather than drug treatment, to solve our opioid crisis, and has undercut his own Civil Rights Division.
WV Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, instead of fighting for a better West Virginia, signed onto a lawsuit against DACA in order to get 800,000 youth from around the U.S. deported from the country they grew up in.
It is clear that their vision of “rebuilding lives” is very different from ours. Sessions, Mooney and Morrisey are not listening to or representing the needs of ordinary West Virginians.
Join us on September 21st to stand up for our values and tell them how to really build a better West Virginia.
When & Where: Thursday Sept. 21 from 9:00AM-9:45AM, at Haddad Riverfront Park (across the street from their conference, which is at the Four Points Sheraton on Kanawha Blvd)
