Thousands of Appalachians voted in Appodlachia’s 2020 award show, and we’re excited to announce that the Appalachian Prison Book Project was named the Appalachian Organization/Non-Profit of the Year!
We share our victory with many other Appalachian stars. Here are some highlights:
- Danielle Walker, Appalachian Activist of the Year
- Dolly Parton, Appalachian Singer/Songwriter of the Year
- Tyler Childers, Appalachian of the Year
Every vote we received—from volunteers, donors, community members, and other supporters—wasn’t just a vote for APBP; it was a vote for challenging mass incarceration, a vote for education and access to books, and a vote to say that incarcerated lives matter.
We here at APBP love being part of the activist community in Appalachia. Thanks to everyone who voted.
