Dear Casey Coates,

In 2010, Earthjustice launched our “Mountain Heroes” campaign, sharing the inspirational stories of several courageous people working to defend their communities and to save mountains. To show these Mountain Heroes that we stand with them in this fight for justice, healthy communities, mountain culture in Appalachia, we asked the public to join in this campaign and share their own stories and thoughts through a public photo petition.

We were amazed by the results. Within days, hundreds of beautiful photos poured in, along with touching captions about why this fight to end mountaintop removal is so meaningful to so many people. Above are just a few examples of the very personal and moving petitions we received.

We’re excited to announce that we are launching an exciting next phase of our “Mountain Heroes” campaign, featuring a dynamic, new website that’s easy to share to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and other social media, plus several new stories of amazing heroes. It’s our biggest public push on ending mountaintop removal mining to date, and we’ll be delivering all of the petitions to the White House on September 13.

So I’m writing to ask you, will you join us? Help us build the biggest photo petition ever, so that we can make a real difference in ending mountaintop removal mining.

Americans from coast to coast are now standing up to show that we refuse to allow more mountains and communities in Appalachia to be destroyed. Please join us.

Please join this photo petition now and help us show President Obama just how much we care about saving mountains and communities. Once you’ve joined the petition, please then share your petition on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and with your networks. We need your help!

Thank you,

Liz Judge
