Appalachian Alliance

 Organization

The Appalachian Alliance was organized in the 1970s as a broad coalition of many grassroots organizations that worked on a variety of issues throughout the Appalachian region. One of its’ most notable projects was the study of Appalachian land ownership. Among the organizations forming a part of the alliance were Commission on Religion in Appalachia, Kentucky Fair Tax Coalition, Save Our Cumberland Mountains, and the Tennessee Hunger Coalition, among others. The alliance disbanded in the mid-1980s. Jim Sessions was secretary of the alliance at the time it ceased operations and maintained the records until donating these to the archives.
