"We need to end mountaintop removal for the health and safety of West Virginians. My little brother is the next generation, and he is going to grow up with this all around him. He deserves clean air. He doesn't need to worry about poisoned water and breathing in air with explosives, heavy metals, dust particles from the explosions. I'm fighting for my family, heritage, culture, and rights that everybody else in this country has."

Amber has joined a growing community of people fighting to stop mountaintop removal. To learn more about her story click here - http://earthjustice.org/mountain-heroes/amber-whittington
