Virginia Coastal Coalition
The Virginia Coastal Coalition (VCC), a non-partisan, non-profit organization in Hampton Roads, aims to bring the private sector business community within the coastal region into the conversation as the region learns to live with rising seas. VCC works to leverage the work of academic, nonprofit, and government organizations though partnerships, engagement, and outreach with the business community. VCC supports policies and initiatives that promote a healthy environment, living with water, and economic vitality. VCC does not participate in activities or endorse positions that require it to take sides with either the business or environmental community against the other. Rather, VCC seeks to promote collaboration in developing solutions that address the concerns of both sides.
