This spirited PSA tells the story of Ghanaian activist Joanna Manu, a modern day David and Goliath tale. Joanna challenged a powerful giant: a huge mining corporation. Ms. Manu attended a training session sponsored by Oxfam America and stood up against land threats and environmental hazards wrought by an open pit gold mining company. The larger message -- that all Americans wield power to influence and make change-- is conveyed using quick cuts, graphics and footage interspersed with the story of Manu.
