RAD Action Team

The RAD Action team is a small group of researchers focused on Jefferson County, WV. Our speciality is researching official processes, documents, permits and events and evaluating them for compliance, transparency and results.

Once RAD identifies an issue, we develop realistic demands that can be presented to decision-makers in positions to take action. Our research and demands are then compiled in a letter and sent to decision-makers as well as other authority figures who should be made aware of the issue but may not be able to affect changes.

We then present our findings and demands to the public and ask for assistance pressuring the decision-makers to take action. We offer letter-writing prompts and templates, petitions, invitations to make public comments and attend public hearings to get the public involved and taking action. These public actions are posted to our website (See the action list to the left!), circulated by email to our “Action Supporters” and shared on facebook on RAD’s page and local ally groups.

What makes RAD different is what happens next. We keep you updated on the results of our actions. Major updates (including responses, determinations, etc) are sent to the Action Supporters and signers of the RAD public action by email, we update the action webpage and update the facebook posts. We’ll tell you what is going on, what we expect to do next and what the public might be able to do.

All of the actions we pursue require extensive follow-up. Many RAD actions will be active for months as we follow-up with questions, demands and more actions. One letter, one phone call, is never enough. Through dogged determination, we will pursue what we start to the end, and we’ll keep you informed the whole way!

RAD Action Motto

Laws, regulations, rules and norms are in place for a reason, to protect the health and safety of people, our community and our environment. We demand that government and businesses follow the rules and give no special treatment.

It’s simple. Follow the rules or RAD will publicly expose the problem.

RAD will be looking to expand our Action team, but for now, the team is not accepting new members. We will be looking for individuals with deep experience who can help investigate situations and develop actions. Do you have a specific professional skill-set and some free time to use your knowledge for the greater good, you might be RAD Action material! Check back in for more information!

Please note: if you sign a RAD public action, we will send you major updates by email so you can follow action progress. If you do not want to receive email updates, simply reply to the email that you don’t want further updates.
