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.

Fall 2014 Free Citizen Lecture Series
As we did in Fall 2013, WMAN will again host a series of FREE informational conference calls in autumn of 2014. These calls give WMAN participants access to expertise and updates on current issues facing mining-impacted communities. Please check back later this summer for updates on this fall’s topics and dates and plan to join us for these free, informative calls. See Programs page for more information.
