Junior Walk's path to activism was not an easy one. From living with contaminated water in his own home as a child, to being kicked out of the house for speaking out against the coal company, and being threatened by relatives and neighbors, Junior has had to muster courage at every step along the way. His courage, and his clear voice calling for change, are now inspiring people across the world to stand up against mountaintop removal.
