Appalachian Mountain Advocates
Appalachian Mountain Advocates is a nonprofit environmental law and sustainable development organization founded in 2001. Our mission is to:
- Protect Appalachian communities and the natural environment that supports them by enforcing and strengthening state and federal environmental laws and using the law to require the region’s extractive and polluting industries to internalize their costs;
- Promote an alternative future for Appalachia by helping to build an environmentally responsible economy in the region, particularly through supporting a local food system.
