We will be showcasing the film Frontliners by filmmaker Anya Sastry on April 8th at 4 pm in the LBC. with a panel discussion with the filmmaker and climate action experts to follow. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in environmental discourse. Earth-themed custom cookies will be distributed to all attendees.
On Frontliners: Frontliners focuses on the issue of environmental injustice within the United States and highlights two on-the-ground fights for climate action and justice. The first part of the film focuses on an Indigenous community in Northern Minnesota combating the Line 3 pipeline and the second part focuses on a Latinx community working for environmental justice in Chicago. Through interviews with community organizers, activists, and those experiencing these issues firsthand, Frontliners gives you an in-depth look at the negative impacts of climate injustice, as well as highlights those who are on the frontlines and who are dedicating their lives to bettering their communities.
