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. Even though North Carolina ranks 9th in the nation for coal ash generation, the state lacks many important safeguards to protect water resources and communities.
Join us for Coal Ash Stories, an event featuring four short films focused on coal ash, public health concerns, related policy, and ways that communities across the nation are responding to this toxic threat. Come learn about the issues, talk with community members, and find out how you can get involved.
The Winston Salem screening is co-presented by Appalachian Voices, North Carolina Conservation Network, Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, Working Films, Earthjustice and Sierra Club Foothills Group. For questions contact Kristin Henry, firstname.lastname@example.org.
