This spring, the Tennessee team at Appalachian Voices fought hard to protect our mountains in the great Volunteer state. We garnered legislative support for the Scenic Vistas Protection Act, and helped shine a light on the Tennessee Mining Association’s bill that would have unnecessarily cost Tennessee taxpayers millions of dollars and taken environmental oversight of coal mining from federal officials and put it in the hands of state regulators.

We plan to to continue this work throughout the rest of the year, organizing groups and communities to fight against this threat and convince the state legislature that protecting Tennessee’s mountains is far more valuable than destroying them.

But we need cannot do this without your support. Help us work toward a Tennessee that is safe from mountaintop removal coal mining. Please donate today.
