Film Screening: From the Ashes

Thursday | June 22, 2017 | 7:00 pm

La Peña Cultural Center | 3105 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94705

“From the Ashes” captures Americans in communities across the country as we wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry, and what its future should be under the Trump Administration. In stories spanning from Appalachia to the West’s Powder River Basin, the film goes beyond the rhetoric of the “war on coal” to present compelling and sometimes heartbreaking stories that speak to what’s at stake for our economy, health, and climate.

After the film showing, there will be a panel with audience participation to discuss our own struggle against the proposed coal export terminal in West Oakland and how it fits into our dreams of a just transition away from fossil fuels.

Admission is free. We want as many people as possible to join us in viewing this film and talking about how our struggle against coal in Oakland affects people in Oakland and from Utah to Asia as well.
