Activists and Impacted Landowners/Residents Meet with NC Legislators to Stop the Atlantic Coast Pipeline!

On April 9th, a number of grassroots organizations joined with pipeline-impacted residents and landowners to lobby our N.C. legislature in Raleigh during the “Clean Energy, Not Fracked Gas Lobby Day”.

The joint advocacy day focused on educating legislators on the mounting legal challenges, lack of need, community health impacts, and diminishing economic viability of the ACP. Lobbying efforts also focused on educating legislators about the lack of need for the MVP Southgate extension through Rockingham and Alamance counties.

We asked that each legislator commit to protecting our communities and fragile environment by signing on to a letter to FERC urging them to issue an official stop work order AND rescind ACP’s Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity.

By the end of the day, 18 legislators had agreed to sign on to the letter! This even includes Senator Erica Smith of Northampton County, who admitted that she had indeed drank the “ACP kool-aid” in the past, but now realizes that the pipeline will do nothing to help her constituents or her county’s economy.

Thank you to all who met with or contacted their state representatives. Together, we WILL stop this pipeline!
