No Coal in Oakland is hosting a free screening of From the Ashes, a new National Geographic documentary about coal.
The film 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 Trump 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.
After the screening, we will share any updates about the coal campaign in Oakland and talk more generally about the struggle for environmental and climate justice as we resist the new administration in Washington.
You can see a trailer for the film here.
The screening is free; donations are welcome. No Coal in Oakland tee shirts will be available for sale.
