Help us protect Central Appalachian communities from the legacy costs of extractive industries

/ 150


The Appalachian Citizens' Law Center is a nonprofit law center that fights for justice in the Central Appalachian coalfields by representing citizens and communities adversely affected by extractive fossil fuel industries and practices. Since our beginning in 2002, our organization has carried out its mission via three distinct avenues: litigation, advocacy, and organizing. ACLC represents and advocates on behalf of miners and widows in federal black lung and mine safety cases, represents individuals and communities struggling with the effects of environmental degradation caused by the coal industry, and facilitates coalition-building and organizing around moving our region towards a just economic transition.

Please help us continue this essential work to fight for justice for all Central Appalachian communities!
