Economic Development

A vibrant and thriving economy is an essential factor in the strength and health of any region. Appalachians have long been disenfranchised, suffering from high unemployment, low wages, and many other obstacles to economic security. The Appalachian Justice Initiative is dedicated to promoting greater economic stability in the region through practical policy proposals, direct legal advocacy, outreach, and education.
