How to get involved:
-Come to our next community meeting on January 9th at 6pm at the St. Francis Xavier Church, 912 7th St. Moundsville, WV. We will discuss the petrochemical projects in detail. Also, we will leave time for brainstorming about what else we can do as a community at the end.
-Attend one of our other events. See event page. We will post any direct actions in that section of this website.
-Call 740-233-1934 or send us a message to learn more about how you can get involved in our efforts. We welcome any and all ideas. We could use help with things like door-knocking and phone calling. You do not need to be an expert.
-Voice your concerns to your local elected officials- attend your local city council meeting or attend a Belmont Co. commissioner meeting. Regular meetings will be held on Wednesdays at 9:00 a.m. until adjournment at the Belmont County Courthouse, 101 W. Main St., St. Clairsville, Ohio 43950. Please contact the Clerk of the Commissioners at 740-699-2155 for placement on the agenda at least 48 hours in advance.
-Sign our petition. See link on home page.
-Write an Op-Ed or Letter to the Editor and send it to your local newspaper. We can help you with that if you need the resources!
-Attend your local city council meeting and let them know how you feel about the proposed petrochemical build-out. The more places we speak up, the better!
