Appalachian Voices was proud to join hundreds of thousands of U.S. residents who marched in Washington and around the nation for science and for the climate. We also released a new study on energy efficiency in Western North Carolina.
Lara Mack, our Virginia Field Organizer, helped organize last Saturday’s “March on the Mansion” in Richmond to call for clean energy solutions over fracked-gas pipelines, toxic coal ash and climate impacts. She reflects on the legacy, captured in the timeless song, “If I had a hammer,” on the power of citizens coming together to fight for social justice.
From Anchorage to Miami, and South Portland to San Diego, thousands of people came out for the National Day of Climate Action this month. In Charlottesville, Appalachian Voices helped turn out perhaps the largest, most diverse environmental justice crowd ever assembled here.
Appalachian Voices has recently been on the road and joining up with many of our partners to stand strong on mountaintop removal coal mining and climate change.
