In 2017 Hands Across the Hills reached out to rural Letcher KY, inviting them to meet with us in dialogue about our histories and our lives. Their visit in October 2017 gave hope that all of us could see beyond stereotypes, and care about each other’s well-being. They hosted us in KY in Spring 2018, sharing their coal mining history and current challenges. In the past two years our connections have deepened. Come hear our stories.
