West Virginia NAACP to Release Report on Reducing Pollution and Creating Jobs in West Virginia
“OVEC applauds NAACP’s release of this report. NAACP’s long-standing commitment to foster a more just world helps to inspire OVEC's environmental justice work. The policies proposed in this report could help speed the transformation of West Virginia's energy sector, from its present unjust practices which heap pollution onto local low-income communities, to one that promotes a healthy and diverse economy, respectful of the environment and all peoples, ” states Janet Keating, Executive Director, Ohio Valley Environmental Council
“At a time when there is growing recognition that West Virginia is at the nexus between climate change impacts and the opportunities to forge new, safer and cleaner pathways for energy production, the NAACP is compelled to advance a justice and equity based analysis of our energy choices and effects on community well-being, and the environment on which we all rely for our existence,” states Sylvia Ridgeway, NAACP West Virginia President
