Supporting Communities Affected by Mining

Nearly 100 organizations, from racially and economically diverse communities, participate in WMAN- the Western Mining Action Network.  WMAN provides opportunities for locally-based citizen groups in the US and Canada to educate themselves, influence decision making, and cooperate to create positive social change that goes beyond the boundaries of any one location or issue.

Free Citizen Lecture Series
Thanks to the success of our previous lecture series, WMAN is announcing a new series of free informational conference calls. These calls give WMAN participants access to expertise and updates on current issues facing mining-impacted communities. See Programs page  for more information, updates, and announcements.
