Join Food & Water Watch for a FREE screening of Groundswell Rising, Protecting Our Children’s Air and Water, a film that brings us into the lives of people from all walks of life and all sides of the political spectrum who are dedicating themselves to resisting, slowing down or stopping fracking.
We meet parents, scientists, artists, teachers, clergy, community organizers and business leaders who are convinced that this unproven form of gas extraction is a serious health and environmental risk. Driven by a deep moral conviction, we see how they are standing up to one of the world’s most powerful industries.
After the film screening, learn more about the threat that fracking poses to our Sunshine State through a Q & A with Craig Stevens, a resident from Dimock, Pennsylvania whose community’s drinking water was contaminated by fracking. Craig has seen the devastation that the fracking industry can have first hand and will talk about what could await Florida's residents if fracking moves forward in the state.
