#StopThewarehousetakeover: Your Advocacy Toolkit
One Hundred Miles is pleased to work alongside our community partners to promote the #StopTheWarehouseTakeover campaign. While we are all working hard to prevent the warehouse takeover, there is no place for violence in the effort. OHM does not condone the use of force, intimidation, or violence of any sort as a means to advocate for our Georgia coast.
Yard Signs & Bumper Stickers
One of our greatest assets is our collective voice. Join the fight by placing a sign in your yard or applying a bumper sticker to your car. Contact your advocate now for either (or both)!
Help build a map of the coast’s warehouses
No one entity has a regional picture of industrial growth on our coast. Share with us what you see on the ground!

What is at risk?
Many of our coastal counties provide vital connections to statewide wildlife pathways called SWAP corridors. When large areas of forest or wetland are cleared and filled with impervious surfaces, disorienting lighting, and increased heavy traffic, natural wildlife patterns are disrupted—sometimes irreversibly. County authorities, like those in Liberty County claim they want to protect their natural assets…but their endless catering to developers suggests otherwise.
Watersheds & Wetlands
With thousands of square feet of concrete, come increased needs for careful stormwater, wastewater, and runoff management. Though mitigation tactics like berms and stormwater containment ponds are required contamination is inevitable at this scale. All it takes is one storm to compromise our water supplies—and impact the people, animals, and plants dependent upon clean water (like those in the North Coast).
