is looking for volunteers!

The SSP works to improve safety of people living in the vicinity of sludge ponds, shutting down impoundments, improving water quality in West Virginia and demanding alternative methods of disposal of coal waste.

Volunteers have the opportunity to work one on one with a specific SSP team or divide their work between several.

The teams revolve around research, legislative policy, and community organizing.

Volunteer opportunities include but are not limited to; event coordination, community outreach, legal research, research editing, web development; grant writing, tech research and archival work.
