Ending Mountaintop Removal: Appalachian Activists Coming to San Francisco

Since Feb 2009, over 150 people have been arrested (in WV alone!) confronting the irrevocable destruction of Appalachia & its accompanying toll on air, water, & lives of Appalachians.

Come learn about the campaign and how you can help!
