Vision in Action at Clearfork
Just Connections joined with Clearfork Community Institute
, located in Eagan, TN, near the TN/KY state line.  We learned from Clearfork’s model for engaging local residents, college students and faculty in land use issues and grassroots community development in a coal mining region of East TN.  The Vision in Action meetings at Clearfork were hosted by Marie Cirillo and members of the Clearfork Community and Woodland Community Land Trust.  Marie has served as a community organizer in Appalachia since 1967, and she is one of the founding members of Just Connections.

Marie Cirillo:  Appalachian advocate celebrates 75 years.
