Appalachian Voices is an award-winning, environmental non-profit committed to protecting the land, air and water of the central and southern Appalachian region. Since the impacts of coal threaten Appalachia more than any other single source of pollution, we are committed to reducing coal’s impact on the region and advancing our vision for a cleaner energy future.
We currently produce a quarterly environmental news publication, The Appalachian Voice, as well as the Advocate, our monthly e-newsletter.
Founded in 1997, we are headquartered in Boone, N.C. with offices in Charlottesville, Va. and Washington, D.C. Since we believe working in concert with others produces maximum results, we are proud members of the Alliance for Appalachia, Waterkeeper Alliance, Wise Energy for Virginia, and Repowering NC coalitions.
E, the Environmental Magazine recently listed Appalachian Voices as one of their top 5 favorite ways to become environmentally active. We have also been recognized as a Google Earth Hero for our website, iLoveMountains.org, which was also named one of the first ever GOOD 100 “people, ideas, and organizations changing the world for good” by Good Magazine.
