The 2012 elections mark a critical moment to make the issue of
mountaintop removal coal mining a top priority issue in our nation's
capital. Can you join us in Washington, D.C., June 2-6, for our 2012 End Mountaintop Removal Week in Washington?
Washington, D.C. needs to hear from extraordinary citizens like you
that our health, our water and our mountains matter -- and that's what
the Week in Washington is all about. This year, we need participants who
are willing to not only meet with their Congresspeople and agency
officials, but also to stand up and take action to stop mountaintop
removal coal mining. That’s right, this year we will have a Day of Action to End Mountaintop Removal.
There will be many ways you can participate in the Day of Action, from
home and from Washington, D.C. -- so stay tuned for details!
Last year's Week in Washington was a tremendous success. More than
150 people from over 20 states came to Washington, holding over 200
meetings with Congressional offices, the EPA and the Obama
administration. Join us this year for Week in Washington! You'll get to meet
and work with other passionate Appalachian activists from around the
country, learn to engage decision-makers and others in your community
about the issue, meet face to face with legislators to inspire and
educate them to end mountaintop removal coal mining and take action on
this important issue! Registration will open March 1, so save the date! Full and partial scholarships are available on a needs-basis. Scholarship applications will be due by April 6.
Can’t make it to Washington this year? Please consider sponsoring a participant by donating today.
We hope to see you in Washington!
