About the HOA! Campaign

HOA banner

UBS: Hands Off Appalachia! is a volunteer run, urban-based campaign demanding UBS change their official policy and stop funding and supporting companies that engage in mountaintop removal coal mining [MTR].

UBS is a wealth management company based out of Zurich, Switzerland. They are one of the top funders of mountaintop removal mining in the world! Mountaintop removal destroys the health of our communities and land. Our campaign involves strategic research, outreach, and direct action in order to apply enough public pressure that UBS stops funding MTR.

The Hands off Appalachia! Campaign was organized in Knoxville, TN, but is made up of dedicated volunteers across the region. As a campaign, we are committed to ending the financing of mountaintop removal. Please visit http://ilovemountains.org/the-human-cost for peer-reviewed studies on the effects of MTR.
