Coal Ash Stories Across the State
June 12, 2014 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pmFree
Imagine being afraid to drink your water, take a bath, fish, or farm. These are the fears facing communities near the Duke Energy coal ash spill and in areas around other coal-fired power plants in North Carolina.
You’re invited to Coal Ash Stories, an event featuring four short films focused on coal ash, public health concerns, related policy, and ways that communities are responding. The tour begins June 12 in Winston-Salem and ends June 19 in Greensboro, and covering Belews Creek, Charlotte, Durham, Wilmington, Raleigh and Asheville in between. Come learn about the issues, talk with community members, and find out how you can get involved.
The NC screening tour is co-presented by Appalachian Voices, Earthjustice, North Carolina Conservation Network, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, and Working Films. Contact Kristin Henry, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions.
