Plan To ‘Reimagine Appalachia’ Touts Jobs, Justice and Sustainability For The Ohio Valley

West Virginia Public Broadcast, Ohio Valley Resource – A coalition of progressive policy and environmental groups has released a “blueprint” that provides a framework for how Ohio Valley communities could reap the benefits of federal action to address climate change and the COVID-19 pandemic. Read full article here.

The plan, titled “Reimagine Appalachia” envisions a future economy for the traditionally extraction-based economies of Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania that builds on the region’s other natural resources, creates well-paying jobs and positions the Ohio Valley at the forefront of addressing climate change. 

The framework, which has been endorsed by nearly 60 organizations including Appalachian Voices, the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition and the National Wildlife Federation, was led in development by the left-leaning Policy Matters Ohio and its sister organizations across the region.
