We are proud to announce that in 2013 we granted over $165,000 to 32 grassroots groups 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.
