People vs Pipeline

November 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) is a partly completed 300-mile fracked gas pipeline through West Virginia and Virginia. If completed, it will carry a volume of gas annually that would have emissions equivalent to 35 coal power plants. It has serious local environmental, health, and safety impacts and faces broad community opposition.

Join us for this hybrid forum (option for in-person or online attendance) with visual presentation to learn the truths about the Mountain Valley Pipeline from Maury Johnson, a leader in the epic resistance movement that has delayed the project for years. Participants will learn more about:

  • Why the MVP is a climate disaster.
  • Why it is a violation of environmental justice.
  • How the process to force pipeline construction exposes the corruption in our political system.
  • Why the pipeline is neither necessary nor inevitable.
  • How impacted communities have fought the MVP for years, and come close to winning.
  • What you can do to join the resistance to MVP!

Maury Johnson is a southern West Virginia landowner, whose organic farm has been impacted by the Mountain Valley Pipeline. He is a member of Preserve Monroe and the POWHR (Protect Our Water, Heritage, & Rights) Coalition, two organizations that have been fighting the MVP and other harmful projects across West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina for 8 years.

Moderated by IPS Climate Policy Project Director, Basav Sen.
