All Hands Alliance has had a busy couple of months, naming Holly Paterson executive director, and opening an office in Newport. This nonprofit worldwide community effort has the mission to eradicate trash and debris from the world’s oceans and waterways through global citizen participation. Sound familiar? The effort was previously introduced as C-Change, but has been renamed All Hands Alliance to capture the collaborative, grass-roots nature of the program. Paterson comes to the organization from a background running successful events and programs based in the marine industry. “We’ll work with yacht clubs and other organizations to gain traction in this worldwide problem,” Paterson says. ““The people who love our oceans and nature the most are the people who are out in it the most—it’s a natural goal for them to pitch in.” Keep an eye out for updates from All Hands Alliance.
