Attend or Host a Coal Country House Party!

A Stunning Documentary All Communities Should See
Coal Country is a stunning new documentary that reveals the devastation of mountaintop-removal coal mining to the forests, streams, and communities of Appalachia. Produced by Mari-Lynn Evans and Phylis Geller, Coal Country brings us inside the lives of Appalachian residents who are directly threatened by mountaintop-removal, a destructive mining practice where mountaintops are blasted away to expose the coal; the waste is then dumped in the waterways of nearby communities. As it takes us through each stage of coal mining and processing, Coal Country reveals the shocking true cost of America's over-reliance on coal.

Coal has an impact on every single community -- one way or another. Join this national movement by sharing this important film with your friends and neighbors.

  • Watch Coal Country .
  • Hold a discussion about the movie and mountaintop-removal coal mining.
