Clean Water for All: Reflecting on the 2014 Water Crisis and Shaping a Water-Secure Future
Ten years ago, Freedom Industries threatened the health of 300,000 West Virginians when a chemical used to clean impurities from coal leaked from a tank into the Elk River, upstream from the West Virginia American Water municipal water intake and distribution center. This devastating occurrence had far-reaching consequences that called for accountability from polluters and emphasized the need for a water-secure future. Ten years later, our work is far from over.
Please join WV CAG, the WV Rivers Coalition and other partners as we reflect on the 10th Anniversary of the 2014 Water Crisis and shaping a water-secure future.
Date: Tuesday, January 9, 2024
Time: 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Where: The Culture Center (1900 Kanawha Blvd. E., Charleston WV)

Save Our Solar Rally
Solar is under attack by legislators and monopoly utilities that are leading the effort to change net metering rules—important policies that ensure solar is economically viable and accessible to all consumers. West Virginia lawmakers must not let this happen.
Ensuring that consumers are fairly compensated for the power they produce is a crucial part of energy freedom. Join us for the Save Our Solar Rally on Saturday, January 20, 2024 in Charleston, WV.
