Are you a mining industry worker and have concerns about how black lung could affect you? Or do you have a family story about how black lung has already affected your family or your community? Then you can share your story with us.

Since 2015, 16 cases of black lung have been confirmed – those are only the ones we know of – and this disease should have been eradicated years ago.

We know that as years go by, more and more cases will come out – affecting past, current and future workers, their families and their communities.

We need to know how black lung has affected you or your loved ones, by understanding and sharing those stories, we can engage the community to stand with us and make black lung history.

Will you share your story today?
