Mountain Justice Spring Break (MJSB) will bring together residents of extraction communities, college students, environmentalists and concerned citizens who are interested in learning more about mountaintop removal coal mining, fracking, and the dangers of nuclear energy. We will engage in strategy sessions to move forward with our collective efforts to transition away from these dirty forms of energy extraction.
We will spend a week in West Virginia cultivating the skills and visions needed to build a sustainable energy future in Appalachia. Through education, community service, speakers, hiking, music, poetry, direct action and more, you will learn from and stand with Appalachian communities in the struggle to maintain our land and culture. Anti-Oppression trainings and discussion will be a significant part of this week, and we will strive to incorporate Anti-Oppression, Dismantling Racism and Patriarchy into all aspects of our week.
Mountain Justice Spring Break will also offer a variety of community service projects. To see the schedule for the week, go to the Agenda tab.
