Webinar on the RECLAIM Act, April 18 at 12 EST

Heard about the "POWER Plus Plan" or the "RECLAIM Act" but not sure what they are? Curious about how mine reclamation could create jobs in communities struggling with the decline of the coal industry? Want to know how you can support a bill that would assist a just economic transition in these communities?

The Alliance for Appalachia's Economic Transition Team is hosting a free webinar to focus on the RECLAIM Act, which was introduced by Congressman Hal Rogers (KY) in February and is the legislative vehicle moving forward the reclamation piece of the POWER+ Plan. The webinar will be for folks in Appalachia and outside the region, alike.

The webinar will give an overview of RECLAIM and its potential impact on communities struggling with the decline of the coal industry. It will also include a discussion of how the Alliance and its member organizations have been moving forward a strategy to build support around the legislation, and how you can be part of the movement.

There will be time at the end for Q & A. We hope you'll join us Monday, April 18 @ 12:00pm.  If you cannot attend the live webinar, don't worry! We will send around a link to the recording afterwards.
