The new documentary, ‘Change-makers of the SWVA Coalfields’ poses key questions we care about deeply:

 

Can we really revitalize SWVA?  How can we break down barriers to transform this proud and productive region into one that offers good-paying jobs and social vibrancy while still retaining our kind and true character?  Will our children want to stay and raise their family in these beautiful mountains, or uproot in search of a more lucrative life in an urban area?

 

Come and meet the leaders in our midst who are courageously confronting these challenges and finding creative solutions to re-awaken this powerhouse of energy into a vibrant place that’s drawing new folks… while also enticing our young folks to remember why they love calling this special (unique) place “home.”
