We cannot let Virginia Attorney General Cuccinelli undermine our state’s environmental laws.
Mainstream Virginians who may have voted for Ken Cuccinelli for Attorney General last November likely had no idea what they were getting, but we all know now. For the next four years we have a right wing extremist as Attorney General who is much more interested in pursuing his radical agenda than in serving the interests of all Virginians.
First, Cuccinelli attacked the environment, suing the US EPA over climate change. The same day he filed suit, Sierra Club was there responding in the media and then filing a counter suit in support of the EPA’s actions to regulate greenhouse gases.
It is your financial support of the Virginia Chapter of Sierra Club that maintains our office in Richmond to keep an eye on and respond quickly to environmental threats and opportunities. That support also funds our organizers in Hampton Roads and Northern Virginia and our work around the state.
Whether it is supporting offshore wind power in Virginia Beach, opposing a new coal plant in Surry County or offshore drilling off our coast, Sierra Club is there. From green building codes to protecting our National Forests, Sierra Club, our dedicated Virginia volunteers and staff are attending hearings, lobbying legislators and working to protect our state and planet.
Each March, the Virginia Chapter makes an appeal for funding from our members and friends. With your financial support we will be there to meet the next challenge and to build a sustainable future. Please give TODAY!
