Program areas at Appalachian Voices

Shift investments to clean energy and accelerate a just transition to healthy prosperous communities: promoted policies and strengthened efforts to hasten a transition to clean energy sources that support rather than destroy the natural and cultural heritage of the appalachian mountain region, and worked in broad partnerships to advance economic initiatives in areas most impacted by coal to build more resilient economies that build on the assets of the region rather than destroy it.

Build awareness of regional issues: continued to produce and publish the appalachian voice newspaper, distributed throughout our region, to build awareness of environmental threats and opportunities to transition to sustainable energy and economic alternatives.

Prevent new investments and eliminate fossil fuels' externalities: opposed major new investments in fossil fuel-generated electricity that would lock us into decades of continued fossil fuel use and thus discourage renewable energy and energy efficiency gains and internalized the pollution and waste disposal costs throughout the production and use of fossil fuels for electricity generation that are passed on to the public in the form of air and water pollution, habitat destruction and increased health costs.
