Imagine being afraid to drink your water, take a bath, fish, or farm. Toxic coal ash stored across Florida poses exactly these risks. Communities are successfully pushing for clean-up in other southeastern states and we’re hosting an event in Jacksonville to help with these efforts.

St. John’s RIverkeeper is partnering with Northeast Florida Sierra Club, Earthjustice, The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, and Working Films to bring Coal Ash Stories, a documentary that highlights how coal ash is hurting people and communities, to Jacksonville. Four short films are focused on coal ash, public health concerns, related policy, and ways that communities are responding. A panel will follow the presentation that includes the filmmaker and local speakers. Come learn about the issues, talk with your neighbors, and find out how you can help protect your community. Register online for this free event at www.stjohnsriverkeeper.org.
