Countdown to Appalachia Rising, September 25-27

In just five days people will be streaming into Washington, DC for Appalachia Rising, a national convergence of coalfield residents and activists to create a more just and prosperous Appalachia and move beyond mountaintop removal mining.

Over the weekend at "Voices from the Mountains" there will be strategizing, workshops,  learning, and cultural events to create vibrant discussion and progress on the struggle to end mountaintop removal. Saturday morning we'll hear about the various challenges and opportunities facing the region, and then in the afternoon we'll shift to the strategies and tactics we can use to address them.

And then on Monday we get to hit the streets - we'll have a colorful march and rally to send our message of a more just and prosperous Appalachia free of mountaintop removal.

It's not too late to attend! Sign up, find a ride, and get more details at
