SOLD OUT, & NOT GUARANTEED THAT YOU COULD GET A TICKET AT THE DOOR.
SORRY, WE'LL LET YOU KNOW IF THERE WILL BE ADDITIONAL SCREENINGS.
In California’s Central Valley, there is a crisis. Not only are communities running out of water, but over the last few years, they’ve seen an increase in dangerous forms of drilling for oil and gas. To make matters worse, the historic drought fueled by climate change is exacerbating existing health issues, water scarcity, and poor air and water quality. Luckily, the Central Valley’s history of resistance hasn’t faded. Communities are rising up against a hypocritical Governor who claims leadership on issues that are hurting communities in California today.
Join The Center on Race, Poverty, and the Environment, 350.org, and us for a screening of Growing Resistance: Drought, Oil & Climate Change in California, a 28-minute film that shares the stories of communities on the frontlines who are rising up against not only the immediate health impacts of the oil and gas industry, but against the growing climate impacts that are disproportionately impacting the most vulnerable in the state.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with:
Shadia Fayne Wood, Director and Coordinator of Survival Media Agency
Linda Capato Jr., US Fracking Campaign Coordinator, 350.org
Madeline Stano, Staff Attorney, Center on Race, Poverty and the Environment
Juan Flores, Community Organizer, Center on Race, Poverty and the Environment
