Piedmont Residents In Defense of the Environment has been selected to receive a $1,000 mini-grant from the Center for Health, Environment and Justice. The grant supports PRIDE’s work on the “Keep the Ban” Billboard Campaign to fight uranium mining.
In the award to PRIDE, the center’s executive director, Lois M. Gibbs, stated, “CHEJ commends you and your valuable work; your organization was highly recommended to receive this mini-grant.”
PRIDE launched the first “Keep the Ban” billboard campaign in the spring of 2013 and has installed two billboards in Pittsylvania County to bring awareness to the uranium issue. More information is available at http://keeptheban.org. 282
CommentsI hope these billboards will be as successful as the county billboards begging you to spend money in Halifax County. It is so sad and unbecoming to beg. You beg for the money to be spent here but lets see, you really don't want to allow any industry anywhere near here. Puzzling???
