Breaking Clean Tour 2015

Breaking Clean Tour

The Mullins family is hitting the road once more to share their story about life in the Appalachian coalfields. The Breaking Clean Tour, which visited more than 20 cities in the Southeast and Midwest in 2014, will be heading to the Pacific Northwest this summer. Nick, a former fourth-generation underground coal miner, his wife Rusti, and their children Daniel and Alex will meet with and talk to community groups and individual citizens about Appalachian residents and their struggle against mountaintop removal mining and share Nick and Rusti’s mission to create a better future for their children. “I hope people will take away a new knowledge and interest in how coal is extracted and used,” Nick says. Appalachian Voices is excited to be help sponsor the tour. Learn more about the Mullins family and follow their progress at breakingcleantour.org
