Who We Are
OVEC (the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition) formed in 1987 to stop a hazardous waste dump/incinerator proposed for a low-income community near Huntington, WV. We won that campaign. By supporting organized voices and empowered communities, we’ve been winning environmental and social justice campaigns ever since. Our members and volunteers are crucial to our work. Join OVEC!
