We are excited to announce that for the second year in a row the RReNEW Collective and SAMS will be hosting Virginia Mountain Justice Spring Break from March 3-11, 2012 in the town of Appalachia, VA. During this weeklong event we will hear frontline stories from the death cycle of coal, we will meet and support the folks working to build a better future for Appalachia, we will build our own skills as organizers and change agents, and along the way we’ll have fun, go hiking and put a little elbow grease into local service projects!
Registration fees are on a sliding scale from $50-$500, with a contribution of at least $150 greatly encouraged. We provide meals and lodging for the week. Please contact us if you want to come, but need to defer the registration fee.
Visit mjsb2012.wordpress.com to register for the event, and read more about the kinds of workshops and activities offered throughout the week, as well as information on logistics and registration fees. If you would like to know more about Mountain Justice, check out the website, and while you’re there make sure to also check out RReNEW and the Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards, both additional sponsors for the event.
We hope we see you in Appalachia this Spring!
