We know you’re considering giving to some great causes today, and here are some reasons our new Alliance for the Shenandoah Valley should be on your #GivingTuesday list:
- With your guidance and support, we have built a strong new organization with a dynamic board of directors, a dedicated staff of community leaders, and a clear vision for a bright future for the Shenandoah Valley.
A Shenandoah Valley where our way of life is sustained by rural landscapes, clean streams and rivers, and thriving communities.
— Alliance Vision Statement, adopted September 2018
- Solar energy projects are popping up throughout the Valley. We are working to break down barriers to small-scale rooftop solar in the state legislature, while developing suggested guidelines for localities so that utility-scale projects are located where they have minimal impact on prime farm soils and unique cultural resources.
- The Atlantic Coast Pipeline is not a done deal! And we will continue to push back on Dominion’s unneeded pipeline at every opportunity.
- On-the-ground, we continue to follow zoning and comprehensive plan changes and updates in your cities and counties and inform you when there is opportunity to provide input. Check out what’s going on in your area.
We are fortunate to live in a truly extraordinary place, kept that way with your support and our work with community leaders to preserve what we care about.
