Dear {contact.first_name},

Greetings from OVEC, the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition. It was great to meet you at ______.

Because you checked “yes” to receiving our action alert list when you signed in, you should now be added to that list (if you weren’t already on the list, of course). If you click on the “View or update your contact information” link at the bottom of this email, you can add yourself to our newsletter list, too. You can also sign up for our blog digest and/or provide us with your mailing address. Of course, you can unsubscribe from any of our lists at any time. Note that we don’t share your information with third parties.

If you don’t already know OVEC, please do take some time to get to know us. You can start by exploring our website: If you have questions, ideas, want to learn more and/or want to volunteer, email us at

We really hope you will check out some videos we’ve just posted to our YouTube channel. We are really excited about these! Our summer college intern, Evan Gilland, produced them to help folks everywhere learn more about the Appalachian Storage Hub/ petrochemical build-out proposed for our region. Find them all here.

If you are already an OVEC member, thank you! Please do consider donating to and/or joining OVEC: Building organized citizen power is essential to all of our work. Active volunteers and members are crucial to our successful work on our mission, which is to organize and maintain a diverse grassroots organization dedicated to the improvement and preservation of the environment and communities, right here in the Ohio River Valley.

We hope you can attend some of the upcoming events that OVEC and/or allied groups are hosting. We have a list here,, which we update frequently.
