Appalachian Voices is a grassroots environmental organization based out of Boone, North Carolina USA that works primarily on environmental issues concerning the appalachian mountain region. Their stated goals include eliminating air pollution, ending mountaintop removal coal mining, and restoring appalachian forests. Their main actions include advocacy, education, and grassroots organizing.
Appalachian voices began its work on mountaintop removal in the 1990's when they helped found the Coal River Mountain Watch. Since then the group has worked on a grassroots level in mining areas. They are also working for the passage of the Clean Water Protection Act, which would prevent the dumping of mining waste material into a waterway, currently a common practice in Mountaintop removal coal mining.
The organization advocates sustainable forestry and is currently working on a landowner's handbook for forest owners as well as presentations and reports on sustainable forestry.
