Everyday Appalachian People are Coming Together
To Move Their Communities Away from an Extraction Economy To An Economy
That Values People, Land, and Mountain Heritage
As we all know, in the age of the internet, anyone can place any link on their website or blog to promote their cause. A white supremacy group has posted a link on their blog to the Foundation website. They do not speak for Larry on this or any other topic. Larry Gibson spent his life fighting for justice for everyone. He would be offended and deeply saddened by those who would use race to divide people. Larry fought for justice all over the world, in Ecuador, Papua New Guinea, and Colombia, and wanted all Appalachians, regardless of race, to have clean water. Please remember Larry in this way and understand that while we cannot control the actions of others, we will continue Larry’s legacy of justice for all Appalachians.
