The Alliance for Appalachia hosted the 7th annual end mountaintop removal Week in Washington on June 2-6, 2012 with nearly 150 citizens in attendance. The Week in Washington is an integral part of our work to connect resident to the halls of power in DC, and in 2012 we continued our campaign toward national legislation that would ban valley fills. This year’s event was a tremendous success, with nearly 150 meetings with House, Senate and Federal Agency representatives! This year individual participants tied together different tactics in a new way for our movement by engaging in a day of action at the end of the lobby week and people noticed. In addition, 4,300 people visited websites featuring the event and hundreds of people across the country called their Representatives to tell them to vote the right way on the Clean Water Protection Act!
