New MiningWatch Staff: Mel Quevillon, Regional Organizer

Mel Quevillon began working with MiningWatch as a Regional Organizer at the beginning of June. Her job, to work with Canadian communities affected by mining, was created in response to the growing list of needs expressed to MiningWatch. She hopes to visit a number of different communities across Canada in the next few months and listen to people's stories in order to see where MiningWatch can provide support, to strengthen networks around various issues, and to create new networks. Since this role is still quite new, Mel is looking for input from you — how could the role of a Regional Organizer be useful for your community?
