Free Screening of Coal Country

You can join actress Ashley Judd, Appalachian activists, and Sierra Club leaders in this national movement by attending a house party near you.

Coal Country is a stunning documentary that takes us inside the lives of the Appalachian residents directly threatened by mountaintop-removal mining, a destructive mining practice that involves blasting apart mountaintops to expose the coal within. The resulting mining waste is then carelessly dumped into streams, polluting the drinking water of nearby communities. As it takes us through each stage of coal mining and processing, Coal Country reveals the shocking true cost of America's over-reliance on coal.
