Coal River Mountain Watch

$2,000 to support purchasing office space to be dedicated as the Judy Bonds Center, a permanent home for Coal River Mountain Watch to continue its work fighting mountaintop removal (MTR) coal mining and its devastating impacts on Appalachian forests, water, wildlife and human health. CRMW’s Judy Bonds, who won the Goldman Environmental Prize in 2003 and died of MTR-related cancer in 2011, was a charismatic and tireless leader in the fight against MTR and is remembered and honored as one of the most important grassroots leaders speaking out against destructive mining practices.
