Keep the Ban Coalition Spearheads Successful Ad Campaign in Southern Virginia

Over the last several weeks, SELC and its Keep the Ban coalition partners have run ads in the Danville Register & Bee and Chatham Star-Tribune extolling the environmental and economic assets of Southern Virginia that could be compromised should the current ban on uranium mining in Virginia be lifted.  These ads focus on the tourism, recreational and agricultural riches of the region, and point out that over 60 governments, businesses, and organizations have passed resolutions to support continuation of the ban.  The ads have created considerable buzz in Pittsylvania County and surrounding areas.
