GNAT: Creating Real Homeland Security

Record #:
The Granville Nonviolent Action Team (GNAT) is the winner of a 2008 Indy Citizen Award for positively impacting their local community. GNAT has been successful at revealing the public safety, environmental, and financial risks that come with building a federal disease research lab in Granville County. Construction of the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility is supported by the US Department for Homeland Security, the NC Consortium, and many high-ranking local, state, and federal officials. So far, the group has been able to prevent the construction of the facility.
