At one demonstration, Hanna traveled with a student’s father to the energy company’s headquarters in downtown Richmond to demand the closure of coal mining operations near the elementary school. Executives refused to meet with them. Hanna and the parent were determined not to leave without a guarantee the mining would be stopped. After three hours of waiting, they were arrested for trespassing—a fate that was common among nonviolent protesters demanding change from the coal company.
