About Protect WV

Icon Heading

Irresponsible budget cuts that slash basic funding for education, roads, and safety, put our state at risk and hurt families. It’s up to us to protect West Virginia by holding lawmakers accountable and demanding real budget solutions that preserve our heritage, safeguard our communities, and secure the future of our state. 

Protect WV is a coalition of citizens and organizations working to protect West Virginia from harmful budget cuts that put our state at risk. We are a grassroots education and advocacy group connecting West Virginia values to state budget priorities.

For 15 years the Promise Scholarship has helped thousands
of our best students make the dream of college a reality.

This year that could all change.
