FACT Movie Night — March 9th
Please join FACT for a showing of the 2017 movie Unfractured, which focuses on a year in the life of writer, climate activist and scientist Sandra Steingraber, as she plays a leading role in two difficult, multi-year, and ultimately successful anti-fracking campaigns.
In Sandra’s words: “The film shows how otherwise shy and ordinary citizens fought and won a David versus Goliath battle with the gas industry when it rode into our community wearing a mantle of inevitability. …we crafted a slingshot made of equal parts love, science and grassroots political power. This film shows how we did it. May it help other communities up against the shale gas army shake off self-defeatism and do the same.”
Inspiration for activists and would-be activists working on climate issues, fighting our own fossil-fuel infrastructure projects here in the Northwest.
