Whereas, April Pierson-Keating devoted her life to clean water and environmental justice for her beloved West Virginia and neighboring states of Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and Pennsylvania,
Whereas, April Pierson-Keating was a founding member and Executive Committee member of the POWHR Coalition,
With our deepest gratitude for her friendship and service to the Coalition,
We therefore proclaim August 17 thru 22, 2020 April Pierson-Keating Appreciation Week across the POWHR Coalition region.
Celebrate April’s life through action! Join and support environmental justice advocates in your area and defend what you love.
