Every time we flip on a light switch we are connected to Central Appalachia, as much of the energy that powers our homes and workplaces comes from this coal-rich region. And in recent years much of this coal has been extracted through the destructive practice of mountaintop removal mining (MTR). MTR not only devastates mountains, forests, and streams; it also harms community health, threatens cultural heritage, and impedes sustainable economic development.
Come to learn about MTR from the Central Appalachian citizens struggling to end it and stay for a screening of the award winning film The Last Mountain. Together we will explore ways to join alongside their efforts for justice.
Conference - 1-5pm
Screening of The Last Mountain - 6pm
