Just a few short weeks from our press date, Appalachian Voices will be celebrating its 15th anniversary of working to protect the air, land, water and communities of Appalachia. We hope you’re able to join us at the “Artists for Appalachia” event on
June 21 in Charlottesville, Va., where we will enjoy a special evening of music, readings and revelry with distinguished guests including Jeff Goodell, Jr., Kathy Mattea, Daniel Martin Moore, Michael Johnathon, and more!
Founded in 1997 in Boone, N.C., Appalachian Voices now has offices in Charlottesville, Va., Nashville, Tenn., and Washington, D.C. We use grassroots organizing, education, citizen activism, high-tech online tools, litigation and legislation to empower everyday citizens to speak up for the mountains and help shape policy on a range of issues including mountaintop removal coal mining and air and water pollution from coal-fired power plants.
