September 25-27

Washington, DC

Appalachia Rising is a mass mobilization calling for the abolition of mountaintop removal.  It is a mobilization of thousands of coalfield residents, students & youth, people of all faiths, celebrities, miners, artists converging on Washington, DC to demand the abolition of surface mining, a just transition for coalfield communities, and renewed investment in a prosperous Appalachia.

The Shadbush Collective is organizing in Pittsburgh to participate in the Appalachia Rising mobilization to DC.  We’ll be organizing carpools and helping to secure housing in DC for the demonstrations.
