Beth Spence, Program Coordinator of the West Virginia Economic Justice Program, presents about her involvement in an investigative report of the Upper Branch Mine disaster.

The worst mine disaster in 40 years occurred on April 5, 2010, when 29 miners lost their lives at Massey Energy's Upper Big Branch Mine in West Virginia. Shortly after the tragedy, West Virginia's governor appointed an independent investigation panel which included AFSC staffer, Beth Spence. She served in a similar capacity in 2006 following the Sago mine collapse and brought her experience and journalistic skills to the new report issued on May 19, 2011. I hope you will join us at the meeting and take the opportunity to ask questions about her work!
