The Appalachian Peace Education Center and Green Interfaith Network Inc. will jointly sponsor a free screening of the new documentary, “Paris To Pittsburgh”, on Monday, July 8th at 6:30pm in the Abingdon United Methodist Church fellowship hall.
Narrated by Emmy & Golden Globe winner, Rachel Brosnahan, “Paris to Pittsburgh” brings to life the impassioned efforts of individuals who are battling the most severe threats of climate change in their own backyards. Spotlighting the cities, states, businesses and citizens taking action, “Paris to Pittsburgh” explores the very real social and economic impacts of disasters on everyday Americans and presents the stories of their recovery and resiliency. This National Geographic film also captures what’s at stake for communities around the country and the inspiring ways Americans are responding.
Following the screening, Dr. John Heil, Emory & Henry professor and host of the WEHC radio program on the environment, and Ted Jackson, President of Green Interfaith Network and board member of Tennessee Interfaith Power and Light, will lead a discussion on climate change and offer volunteer opportunities in our area.
Refreshments will be served. All APEC and GINI programs are free and open to the public.
