Nov 10-11, 2007: Come to the Mountain Justice Summer Revisioning Meeting!

This is a chance for organizers, allies, and friends working with Mountain Justice Summer to examine our accomplishments over the past 3 years and create a plan to move forward together. 

This weekend-long retreat is open to any and all people involved with MJS, either presently or in the past. We want your input so we can effectively make MJS a long-standing and successful campaign to stop mountaintop removal in Appalachia. This will be a safe space where everyone is welcome to share their thoughts, ideas, comments, questions and more about the shaping of MJS. We encourage everyone to participate in the discussion — everyone\’s voices will be heard and respected by the group.

The discussions and planning sessions will start on Saturday, November 10 at 10 a.m. and go through the day. Sunday\’s session will start at 10 a.m. and go until early afternoon. Please feel free to come by at any point throughout the weekend for good discussion, music and friends.

Please RSVP as soon as possible!
