Environmental Justice Now Tour: Appalachia
For decades the coal industry has wreaked havoc on the local culture, economy, health and environment of central Appalachia. Now, coal companies are going bankrupt, leaving behind pollution, health issues and economic uncertainty. We’re hosting a virtual forum on Wednesday, December 9, to hear from community activists across Appalachia. Chair Raul M. Grijalva and Congressman Donald McEachin’s #EnviroJusticeNow legislation gives Appalachian communities they tools they need for a #JustTransition. Watch live here at 12 p.m. Eastern.
