what we do
It continues to be clear that strong policy and advocacy work is needed in the region to move towards a fair and equitable economic transition in the region.
ACLC impacts policy through state and federal legislation, comment submissions to agency rulemaking, and by setting new precedents in case law. We collaborate closely with local, regional, and national organizations.
We support and help organize the following coalitions:
to support legislation that funds the reclamation of abandoned mine lands
Black Lung Advocacy
to push for legislation that protects benefits for miners and their families
East Kentucky Water Network
to collaborate on water testing, raising awareness, and building power
Just Transition Allies Group
to plan shared strategies and collaborate with aligned organization in Kentucky
