Take Action: Support Codifying the Environmental Justice Council

Join VAIPL, clergy, people of faith, social justice advocates, and environmentalists to let your legislators in the 2019 General Assembly (GA) know that you believe everyone should live in a clean, safe, and healthy environment. Encourage your legislator to support codifying Virginia’s Advisory Council on Environmental Justice and to support additional measures that will expand environmental justice throughout Virginia!
