J.W. Randolph Speaks At Cherokee Sierra Meeting Nov. 25

Monday, November 11, 2013

J.W. Randolph, Tennessee director of Appalachian Voices, will speak on Mountain Top Removal at the Cherokee Sierra Club Nov. 25 at 7 p.m.  The meeting will be held at Outdoor Chattanooga at Coolidge Park, 200 River St. 

Mr. Randolph continues to work and build grassroots support to protect and promote Tennessee's mountains and a clean energy future for Tennessee. His efforts in the 2012 legislative campaign for the Scenic Vistas bill helped bring it to the state Senate, making it the first mountaintop removal ever heard on the floor of the Legislature. He will speak on the current work to prevent mountain-top removal coal mining. 

The public is welcome to attend this free event and healthy snacks are served. Bring something along to share if you'd like. Parking is free along the sidewalks in Coolidge Park and in the driveway/parking lot of the building, or paid parking in the Theatre lot.
