Join Environmental Advocates at the Capitol for E-Day – Tuesday, 1/28
E-Day at the Legislature, Tuesday, January 28, is a great opportunity for you to get involved with hands-on civic engagement!
E-Day is hosted by the West Virginia Environmental Council and during the event you can meet with environmental organizations who are members of the Council, including WV Rivers.
Discover the importance of civic engagement, take part in citizen lobbying, and learn about environmental initiatives and how you can get involved!
Can’t stay the whole day? Then consider stopping in for the rally at 12:00PM in front of the Senate Chamber to hear from environmental lobbyists, legislators, and Tracy Danzey, the keynote speaker. Tracy was born and raised in Parkersburg during the height of a well-known drinking water contamination by C-8, part of the PFAS family of chemicals. She now suffers with a dysfunctional thyroid and has undergone the amputation of her right hip and leg secondary to osteosarcoma. Her experience as a victim of unregulated industry in West Virginia, coupled with her commitment to her profession as a nurse, has left her uniquely poised to advocate for her fellow West Virginian and their absolute right to a healthy environment.
