As much as the coal industry likes to make themselves appear to be the saviors of coal miners and communities, many of us know the truth and can speak to it. Sadly, there are a lot of miners and their families who underestimate the power of their stories.
The fact of the matter is, the more voices we have, the more we can shed light on the truth, and the better our chances at bringing the change we need—especially for our children. It’s as simple as that.
This page is a space for people to lend their stories, beliefs, and understandings about how the industry has shown its ugly sides. Feel free to post in the comment section below. If you fear retribution from the coal companies, feel free to come up with a different name and e-mail address.
