David vs. Goliath Award Goes to OVECs Boone County Organizer

In San Francisco on October 18, Rainforest Action Network (RAN) honored OVEC community organizer Maria Gunnoe with one of the groups World Rainforest Awards. Maria received the David vs. Goliath Award.

RAN noted, "Gunnoe is a lifelong resident of Boone County, WV. She has experienced the destruction of mountaintop removal coal mining operations firsthand and has organized extensively around the issue in order to preserve the Appalachian way of life and communities throughout the region."

RAN uses "market activism" and is working with groups like Coal River Mountain Watch to reduce our dependence on coal and discourage investment banks from investing in companies that practice mountaintop removal coal mining.

The group has helped to reform corporate behavior, encouraging progressive environmental policies as first steps toward a sustainable and just economy.
