Big thank you to our kind hearted webmaster, Mr. Dave Conroy. Dave was introduced to OYN through a co-worker who was asked to help in searching for a low cost web developer. Dave has a great passion for helping non profit organizations and he currently serves on the board of directors for his community Boys & Girls club. Building websites just so happens to be one of his many hobbies, and at no cost to the organization, Dave have helped in transforming the image of OYN online. He has joined our facebook group and has been interested in learning about the Ogonis. For this and also his financial donation, we say thank you Dave!

Are you in favor of a bi-annual Conference?

In an effort to accommodate the request of the membership, there is a proposal to host a bi-annual conference: one in June and the other in December (as usual).

Please provide your feedback on the proposal and indicate why you are in favor of two conferences or opposed to the idea. Based on the feedback provided, we’ll have a poll test to develop a qualitative data  to evaluate the options.

The Ogoni Struggle

SHELL’s environmental negligence in Ogoni and the condition of the people in the areas where oil and other vital resources are being extracted daily. How do we hold big corporations responsible for their actions in foreign countries?
