  • Mission:
  • The Appalachian Center is dedicated to protecting the communities and natural resources of Appalachia and to developing a sustainable economy for the region. The Center uses research, advocacy, and litigation to 1) protect Appalachian communities and the natural environment that supports them by enforcing and strengthening state and federal environmental laws and by forcing the region’s extractive and polluting industries to pay the true costs of doing business; 2) revitalize Appalachian communities by helping to develop and implement an environmentally sustainable and equitable economic policy for the region; and conserve and restore the wilderness for the benefit of the people who live in and enjoy the region’s forests, streams, rivers, and mountains.

  • History:
  • Extractive and polluting industries have held central Appalachia in a political stranglehold for generations. Lacking the power and resources to rein in these industries power or the ability draw national attention to their plight, the region’s people have been subjected to devastating environmental and economic policies. The Appalachian Center for the Economy and the Environment was established in September 2001. Based in Lewisburg, West Virginia, the Center is a regional nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the communities and natural resources of Central Appalachia. We provide legal and policy assistance at no cost to low income citizens and community and environmental groups in order to counter these destructive practices.
