Stop this gold mine and save our earth and our lives!

Much of Virginia relies on access to well water, myself and my husband and my neighbors included, which could be compromised by mining operations. Gold mining is known for its toxic impact on the surrounding environment, with adverse consequences for children's brain development, adult cancer and cardiovascular risk, and the exacerbation of health inequities. Protecting Virginia's natural environment from mining is vital for constituents' physical and mental health. We want to keep our home safe, healthy, and clean for future generations.
