We are working hard to stop the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. This proposed fracked-gas pipeline would cost $5 billion and damage farms, forests, communities and historic areas all along its 600-mile route through West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina.

And all this for a pipeline that isn’t needed! Studies have shown that we can meet our energy needs without locking ourselves into another long-term commitment to using fossil fuels.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has the authority to approve or reject this project. The public comment period for FERC’s environmental review of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline is open now through April 6, 2017. This is the best opportunity to ensure your voice is heard!

To sign a petition to help stop the ACP, or for more information about a public comment session in your area, please visit or call (434) 293-6373.
