OVEC together-we-grow logoWho We Are

OVEC (the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition) formed in 1987 to stop a toxic 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!

Check It Out!
Help OVEC celebrate our 30th birthday! Join us October 7 for the anniversary edition of our annual picnic for members and supporters. Details here.
