Virginia Condemns the Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast Pipelines

It is a simple matter of biology that humans need clean water to drink and clean air to breathe. We crave a home connected to a broader community through ties of history. We rely on climactic stability to produce the crops which sustain modern civilization. Yet shortsighted forces in Washington, Richmond, and private industry have threatened all of these with the construction of two interstate natural gas pipelines, the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) and the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP).

GPVA Responds to the State of the Union

Contrary to the views of President Trump, we will not make our country stronger or safer by demonizing immigrants. International peace will never be secured through violence and unbridled militarism. Wasting over $1,000,000,000 on expanding the world's largest nuclear arsenal will not deter our enemies, but merely create more opportunities for accidents. Tax cuts have meant nothing to the millions of workers who haven't received a raise in decades. Violating the civil liberties of immigrants, suspected criminals, and American citizens will never make us more secure.

Arlington Housing Authority Referendum now on November ballot!

The lack of affordable housing in Arlington, Virginia has reached critical proportions. In fact, it is estimated that two thirds of all affordable housing units in the county have been lost in the last decade.
