Welcome to MJSB!
We are excited to announce that for the fourth year in a row the RReNEW Collective and SAMS will be hosting Mountain Justice Spring Break Virginia from March 1-9, 2014 in the town of Appalachia, VA. During this weeklong event we will hear the stories of the death cycle of coal, we will meet and support the folks working to build a better future for Appalachia, we will build our own skills as organizers and change agents, and along the way we’ll have fun, go hiking and put a little elbow grease into local service projects! There is also a West Virginia MJ Spring Break happening March 9th-16th; and a Shalefield Justice Spring Break March 16th – 23rd.
If you would like to know more about Mountain Justice, check out the website, mountainjustice.org and while you’re there make sure to also check out RReNEW and SAMS. If your Spring Break lines up with these dates (even if you’re not from Virginia), please pencil us in and look for more information coming your way soon. If you know folks who might be interested, send this along. Also, if you would like to help make this event a successful reality please visit the “Get Involved” page on this site. We also have a Facebook event you can “join.”
If you have any questions, please email us at rrenewcollective (at) gmail.com, samsva (at) gmail.com, or by calling 276 565 2073. We hope to see you in March!
