“From the Ashes” Film Viewing – Asheville, NC

June 23, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

From the Ashes captures Americans in communities across the country as they wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry and what its future should be under the new Administration. From Appalachia to the West’s Powder River Basin, the film goes beyond the rhetoric of the “war on coal” to present compelling and often heartbreaking stories about what’s at stake for our economy, health, and climate. From the Ashes invites audiences to learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for their lives. Hosts First Congregational of Asheville, Mad Batter of Sylva and sponsors, Interfaith Power and Light, MountainTrue and collaborations from other local congregations.
