POWHR is an umbrella organization for groups of activists from counties primarily but not exclusively along the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline corridor (FERC Docket CP16-10). We are a closely knit, grass roots coalition within which outstanding friendships and alliances have developed and continue to grow.
Our groups are from the following counties:
West Virginia: Harrison, Lewis, Upshur, Greenbrier, Summers, Pocahontas and Monroe.
Virginia: Giles, Montgomery, Craig, Floyd, Roanoke, Franklin, and Pittsylvania.
POWHR members extensively network with myriad organizations, groups, agencies and individuals throughout West Virginia and Virginia whose missions are consistent with our own. We are a Community Partner with Virginia Organizing.
