Engaging Spring: We Got This! Film & Discussion Series
The birds are chirping. The flowers are blooming. It’s time for us to get moving. This spring, let’s envision and plan for a better Kentucky. As a network of congregations and individuals of faith we are ready to join together (online, of course) with other people of faith and envision a better Kentucky. What better way to do that than to take inspiration from other communities?
Kentucky Interfaith Power and Light is proud to present “Engaging Spring” the follow-up film series to our winter series. This series is designed to help individuals of faith and congregations who are already interested in working for climate justice and are ready to take on the next step in advocacy and engagement for KY specific issues. Together, we will watch and then discuss three powerful films, three Sundays in a row. The series will culminate in an online gathering on the 4th Sunday. RSVP here.
You are invited to attend one of these screenings/discussions, or all of them - whatever works best for you! Click on the film title to watch the film’s trailer.
April 18: Current Revolution offers a strategic narrative for accelerating our transition to a cleaner and more equitable electric grid. Filmed across several states, the story serves as a case study for communities experiencing energy transitions - their journeys, challenges, and successes.
April 25: UnionTown weaves together the unheard narratives of grassroots organizers in Uniontown, Alabama, as they fight to take back the town from the hands of industrial pollution and complacent politicians in the midst of a high stakes local election.
May 2: Water Warriors is the story of a community’s successful resistance against the oil and gas industry. When an energy company begins searching for natural gas in New Brunswick, Canada, Indigenous and white families unite to drive out the company in a campaign to protect their water and way of life.
May 9: Collaborative Event TBA. After three weeks of film viewing, we will gather together for a collaborative event. Whether you attended one film or all three films, you are welcome to attend this event.
All events start at 6pm ET (5pm CT). For the film screenings, the film will play in the first hour of the event (film length varies), there will be a short break, and then the discussion will begin and run until approximately 7:30pm ET (6:30pm ET).
These screenings are free and open to the public! RSVP here.
