NOGWAL: No Oak Grove Walmart

NOGWAL: A community-wide effort to build a better Oak Grove. We are your neighbors who say, No Walmart! Not here. Not now. We love Oak Grove and the vision of the MAP* plan that our community has developed over the last three years.

Our concern stems from what we have learned about the effects Walmart makes on local communities, their labor practices, their gender discrimination, ruthless business practices, their environmental policies - and their disregard for the plans our community developed over the last three years.
