Documentary Film June 22

Protect the Planet!

See the Documentary Film:  From the Ashes

Thursday, June 22 | 7:00 pm | Heritage Room

Sponsored by: Sustainability Seekers and MO Interfaith Power & Light

Popcorn and drinks provided!

From the Ashes captures Americans in communities across the country as they wrestle with the legacy of the coal industry and what its future should be under the Trump Administration.

From Appalachia to the West’s Powder River Basin, the film goes beyond the rhetoric of the “war on coal” to present compelling and often heartbreaking stories about what’s at stake for our economy, health, and climate. From the Ashes invites audiences to learn more about an industry on the edge and what it means for their lives.

This is a great opportunity to discuss positive actions towards a clean energy future.  Now is the time when people are standing up and demanding we protect Creation and the health of the planet.

Fracking 101 March 30

Fracking 101

Thu, Mar 30 | 7:30-9:00pm | Heritage Room. 

Sustainability Seekers & Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom is sponsoring a talk entitled Fracking 101. Fracking is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, boreholes, etc., so as to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas. Fracking has lowered the domestic price of oil. However, it has a poor environmental impact. Environmentalists say potentially carcinogenic chemicals used may escape and contaminate groundwater and the air around the fracking site. Fracking is causing earth tremors. Our speaker, Connie Gray, will share her experiences living near fracking sites and the impact on her family. Contact Joan Brannigan for more information: 314-997-7698 | joan@mac.com
