Keep the Ban on Uranium Mining and Milling in Virginia
Join the Virginia Conservation Network, Virginia League of
Conservation Voters-Education Fund and the Sierra Club for one of our
2011 summer workshops. This year our citizen and legislator briefing
will focus on the "Keep The Ban" Campaign and how you can get involved.
Virginia has a nearly 30-year ban on uranium mining. Foreign-backed
interests are trying to lift the ban so they can mine and process
uranium, starting in Southside Virginia.
Drinking water, human health, farmland, property values, wildlife and tourism across Virginia are at risk.
We will be inviting State Senators and Delegates in your area. Please make sure to invite your local elected officials to join us!
