The Alliance for Appalachia hosted dozens of Appalachian community leaders in DC along with allies from across the country to fight for the Our Water, Our Future. Our organizing team assembled a great training that introduced emerging leaders to the policy recommendations that our Federal Strategy team has developed for the Obama Administration. These administrative changes include a Conductivity Rule and strong Selenium Standard from the US Environmental Protection Agency and a strong Stream Protection Rule and Mine Fill Rule from the Office of Surface Mining Reclamation Enforcement. We summarized the basic asks in a Report Card that graded the Obama Administration on their efforts to stop mountaintop removal, then printed out the report card to present to the CEQ following our big meeting. In addition to sitting down with agency officials, groups met with Congressional Representatives, worked with EQAT to demand that PNC bank to divest from mountaintop removal.
