Digging Out the Community: Sand Mining in South Carolina
Sand mining has become a major issue on many of the Sea Islands in the Gullah/Geechee Nation and in mainland communities of South Carolina. In order to further educate the public at this topic and the current battle to stop mining from taking place in Daufuskie Island, SC in the Gullah/Geechee Nation, the South Carolina Coastal Conservation League is hosting a panel discussion on Thursday, December 10, 2020 at 11:30 am.

Help Save the @GullahGeechee Communities of Phillips and 7 Mile
Once again, the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition is partnering with the South Carolina Coastal Conservation League and also with Charleston Moves to protect the Gullah/Geechees of Mt. Pleasant, SC. Unfortunately, the roadway plans depicted in the documentary are now slated to take place. If they are to go forward, Highway 41 would run straight through Phillips and there wouldn’t be any sound barriers to stop the further disruption of the quality of life for the native Gullah/Geechees on family compounds in Phillips and Seven Mile. This would further lower the quality of life for the folks that are able to continue to stay on the property that would remain after the highway is directed through it. The others will have to figure out where they will live since they will be displaced.
