Whether she’s raising awareness for malaria or standing up for homeless animals, Ashley Judd always seems to be doing something awesome! Now, the actress and spokesperson for the Natural Resources Defense Council is heading to Washington D.C. to speak up for Mother Earth.

On Wednesday, June 9, Judd will be discussing the controversial practice of mountain top removal coal mining at a National Press Club luncheon. Mountain top removal — which President Obama has called “one of the most destructive industries in America” — has leveled hundreds of Appalachian peaks, clearcut forests, destroyed thousands of miles of streams and poisoned drinking water in communities throughout southern West Virginia, southwestern Virginia, northeastern Tennessee and eastern Kentucky.

According to the National Press Club website:

“Judd, a Kentucky native, has long been outspoken about the need to stop this harmful mining method. As part of this effort, she has partnered with the Natural Resources Defense Council and other environmental groups to raise national awareness of the problem and to inspire others to join the fight to end mountaintop removal.”

Can’t make it to D.C.? No problemo! Judd’s NPC Luncheon will be broadcast live, which you can listen to at NPC.org. That’s what we’re talking about! Go get ’em, Ash!
