Mountain Justice Training Camp (Letcher County, KY)

 

See the Mountain Justice website for more information or to register.

As the campaign to stop mountaintop removal gains national awareness, we have more and more opportunities for folks to help out. We've got a job for every interest, skill set and time commitment! We invite you to spend the summer working with one of our ally groups or to work with us in your hometown throughout the year!

Mountain Justice training camp is an opportunity for veteran and novice activist to build the skills and vision needed to abolish mountaintop removal and build vibrant, healthy, self-reliant communities. We ask that you attend camp with the intention of using these skills either working with allies in Appalachia or working on this issue in your hometown. The registration process will help you develop a plan for how you will use this training. Training camp is a time for training, strategizing, bonding, service and action for people living both within and outside of the coalfields, for women and men, for people of all races, for youth and elders, and anyone in between.

We invite you to come to camp and train and then join us at Heartwood’s 21st Annual Forest Council: Energy! May 27-30, 2011 at Camp Ahistadiin Southwestern Virginia. We also encourage everyone attending MJ camp 2011 to stay in Appalachia at least long enough to support the March on Blair Mountain.
