Down To the Wire Episode 4: The James River Matters

The #DownToTheWire team has been spreading the word from Richmond to Jamestown about Dominion Virginia Power’s plan to forever alter the historic James River.

Over the past two months, the #DownToTheWire team has been hard at work in Virginia, spreading the word from Richmond to Jamestown about Dominion Virginia Power’s plan to forever alter the historic James River with a new high-voltage transmission line.

And though we met thousands of people along the way, the sentiment always seemed to stay the same: “Don’t ruin our river with your ugly power lines!” Check out the final clip in our video series to see how we made sure that Dominion got the message loud and clear.

Hearing hundreds of personal stories about this beautiful place was truly inspirational, and our campaign is far from over. If you have not already, you can still tell Dominion to do the right thing by signing our petition. And if you have, please consider forwarding it along to your friends and family. Every signature counts, not matter where you live.

And now, for our final video:
