Speak out for Virginia's people and parks!

For decades, energy policy in Virginia has put people and parks last. The result: unnecessary or over-sized infrastructure projects that cut across the historic landscape at Jamestown; pollute the air at Shenandoah; and flood Fort Monroe's coastline.

Now Virginians have the opportunity to turn a corner for the parks we all love. With a new conservation majority in the General Assembly, the Commonwealth could enact energy legislation that will protect our parks while cleaning the air -- and saving Virginians money on electricity bills.

Park advocates need to speak up now to make sure parks are a priority for the new Assembly. Send your letter and tell your representatives in Richmond to support the Virginia Clean Economy Act!

Please remember to personalize your message below by telling your legislators why protecting Virginia's parks is important to you!


  • Your State Senator or Senators
  • Your State Representative or Representatives


Please support and pass the Virginia Clean Economy Act

Dear [Legislator],

As a constituent and a park advocate, I'm writing today to ask you to do everything you can to pass the Virginia Clean Economy Act for Virginia's people and parks.

I urge you to grow our economy, safeguard consumers, help our state be more resilient in the face of more severe weather and more frequent storms, and protect our parks by supporting the Virginia Clean Economy Act now.

Thank you for your consideration,
[Your Name]
