All I Want for Christmas is No ACP
Tell Governor Cooper – NO ACP for the Holidays!
Soon, our North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality will be making its final decision on a major permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
We need your help to send a message to the Governor and officials in Raleigh that North Carolina doesn’t want or need this pipeline.
Help us flood the Governor’s office with Holiday-themed NO ACP postcards. Pick your favorite design at the link here and send a postcard to the Governor. You can download and print at home, or we can send one on your behalf!
