Advocacy Committee

With the many environmental issues and disasters plaguing the Earth and Virginia, building a network of environmental justice advocates in our own Richmond backyard is our goal. Our advocacy protects the public and planet from environmental hazards by lobbying our policy makers and community leaders for environmental solutions. We create social media content, organize rallies and events, educate our elected officials and other leaders, and partner with like-minded organizations in the community toward our common goals.

Environmental advocacy is personal, and we will help you find your voice. If you have a strong passion for social justice and environmental transformation, become an environmental advocate with the Falls of the James Group. It will be a rewarding experience.

If you’d like to plug in to our Advocacy Committee, or one of our many Issues Subcommittees, send an email to Lee Williams ( to be added to our google group list serve.
