About Us

United Mountain Defense (UMD) is a volunteer driven nonprofit organization committed to halting mountaintop removal coal mining in Tennessee and assisting coal impacted communities. We have many years of experience working on issues relating to surface mining and its impacts on communities. UMD conducts activities in three principle areas: scientific monitoring and data collection, community organizing including outreach and education, and data collection and analysis from federal and state agencies. These activities are conducted within the state of Tennessee, primarily in Campbell, Claiborne, Scott, Fentress, Bledsoe, Knox Blount, and Roane counties.

Our Mission Statement: United Mountain Defense is dedicated to protecting Tennessee’s Watersheds, Air Mountains and People.
