July 22nd- 24th

The Black Appalachian Coalition works to amplify Black voices, dismantle Appalachia’s colonized narrative, and use story-based strategies and solutions that center the voices and lived experience of Black Appalachians.

A crucial part of uplifting Black communities is sound policymaking. On July 22-24, BLAC hosted its first Policy Summit, a multi-day conversation on uplifting Black voices to create effective, community-centered policy.
