ubs-winWe are proud to announce that in 2014 we granted more than $172,000 to 54 organizations working for social change in Central Appalachia. Thank you to all the grantees for the work they do to address the systemic issues of oppression in our Appalachian communities. We are proud to stand together as we continue moving forward on our Journey toward Justice.
