Coal Ash Stories includes four short films that illustrate the public health concerns, policy issues, and ways communities are responding. The purpose of the program is to educate residents and draw attention to the toxic impact of coal ash on communities.
The films include:
Groups and individuals interested in hosting a house party, community screening, or using the films for other related purposes should fill out the request form. You may also contact Andy Myers at amyers at workingfilms.org, directly with questions. Additional resources including a screening guide and template flyer will be available shortly.
In 2014, Working Films partnered with Appalachian Voices, Earthjustice, the North Carolina Conservation Network, NC WARN, the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, and nineteen local organizations to launch Coal Ash Stories. The events brought four short films, conversation, and action on coal ash across North Carolina. We are currently expanding the film program in NC to rural areas and for use in house parties and trainings as well as extending the program to additional priority states.
Coal Ash Stories is part of Working Films' Reel Power initiative.
