This upcoming Earth Day join us for the Revisioning Recovery: Uncovering the Roots of Disaster climate justice film series hosted by the Watauga Public Library, Working Films, the Appalachian State University Sustainable Development Department, the Climate Stories Collaborative, and the Climate Action Collaborative, and sponsored by North Carolina Humanities. The program features a collection of five short films that tell environmental disaster recovery stories and examine historical inequities that worsen when disasters hit. This free event will also include an interactive post-screening discussion with Sustainable Development students Kylie Barnes, Aidan Malone, Hazel Pardington, Justin Sykes, and Luke Williams and the fimmaker of The Sacrifice Zone, Julie Winokur. This event is an opportunity for those who are actively engaged in the fight for environmental justice in our local community and beyond to recruit, connect, and continue to strengthen the movement for climate justice.
Join us! Online Thursday, April 22nd 6:30-8:30pm (RSVP at: bit.ly/rrapril22 )
