The Reclaiming Appalachia Coalition is made up of leading organizations in the just transition movement: Appalachian Voices, Coalfield Development, Rural Action and Downstream Strategies. We partner with coal-impacted communities and engage state and regional development agencies to identify mine reclamation projects with the potential to deliver positive economic and social impacts. We envision a robust movement around innovative mine reclamation that supports the growth of a mature restoration economy in Central Appalachia.
