In California’s Central Valley, there is a crisis. Not only are communities running out of water, but over the last few years, they’ve seen a dramatic increase in health impacts from dangerous forms of drilling for oil and gas — including fracking.
Governor Brown claims to be a climate leader, but that’s not the whole story. Growing Resistance: Drought, Oil & Climate Change in California, pulls back the veil and exposes what his “leadership” really looks like for public health, communities, and the climate in California.
Growing Resistance takes you to ground zero of extraction in California and shows first-hand how the drought, fracking, and climate change are impacting communities and exacerbating existing health issues, water scarcity, and poor air and water quality.
As the film shows, the Central Valley’s history of resistance hasn’t faded. Communities are rising up against the direct impacts they face and a hypocritical Governor who claims to be a “climate leader.” Don’t miss the Bay Area premier of Growing Resistance followed by a Q&A with the film’s director and four other panelist who are helping lead this movement. You’ll hear from experts in the field of law, community organizing, and public health.
