Environmental racism is playing out in Union Hill, a predominately African-American community in rural Virginia founded by freed slaves. One of the largest monopoly utilities in the country and corporate donors in Virginia politics is helping run a campaign of disinformation in order to build a massive polluting gas compressor station in the heart of the community as part of the massive Atlantic Coast Pipeline project. We are joined by the actor and activist Tim Guinee, as well as Pastor Paul Wilson, a leader of the #WeAreAlllUnionHill coalition, to breakdown what’s happening in Union Hill, Virginia — a fight you should be involved in if you care about environmental justice, transitioning off fossil fuels, holding elected officials accountable, and protecting the health and heritage of communities.
