Become a RiverRep!

We are a voice for the James, identifying the risks facing our river and sharing solutions that will produce results for clean water and healthy waterways. We take our message to Washington, urging Members of Congress to support critical programs like the Chesapeake Bay Cleanup effort and bedrock environmental laws like the Clean Water Act. We walk the halls of the State Capital in Richmond, talking with lawmakers about upcoming votes and pressing issues. We engage with the Governor and his staff as they set priorities and craft budgets. And we work with state and federal agencies charged with conserving our natural resources for future generations to enjoy.

With so much ground to cover, we need your help. We’re looking for passionate, self-directed individuals who want to actively advocate for clean water. We’ll help you identify solutions to the problems facing our river, teach you how to most effectively share your message, and keep you in the loop on our ongoing advocacy strategy. With your help, we can convince policy-makers to make clean water and land conservation a priority as they craft budgets and draft legislation.
