PRESENTED BY: First Hill Meaningful Movies

As Seattle and other cities wrestle with how they can respond to the climate emergency, “Paris to Pittsburgh” brings to life the impassioned efforts of individuals who are battling the most severe threats of climate change in their own backyards. Set against the national debate over the United States’ energy future – and the Trump administration’s explosive decision to exit the Paris Climate Agreement – the film captures what’s at stake for communities around the country and the inspiring ways Americans are responding.

In the absence of federal leadership, many of those solutions are being implemented at the local and state levels. Our post-movie discussion with Maddie Smith of Earth Ministry and Amanda Sorell of 350 Seattle will explore local solutions, including the Green New Deal for Seattle. Doors open at 6 p.m. for conversation and light refreshments; movie starts at 6:30 p.m. Free.

Don’t miss any of the films in our three-part Fall Faith & Ecology film series, “Striving for Climate Justice.” On Monday Oct. 14 we’ll show “Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret” and on Monday Oct. 21, “The Reluctant Radical” at the same location and time.
