Mtn. News: Mountain Empowerment
This week on Mountain News & World Report we hear stories of communities throughout Central Appalachia speaking out against injustice, documenting important stories and perspectives, and organizing to create change.
This edition brings you stories of:
- LGBTQ+ organizing in the mountains through the Appalachian Community Fund’s Out in the South Project,
- young women documenting reproductive healthcare through the All Access EKY Program – a project of Appalshop’s Appalachian Media Institute in partnership with the Kentucky Health Justice Network, and the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy.
- and Letcher and Pike County Representative Angie Hatton speaking out against KY Power’s proposed rate increase.
