Arctic Refuge Film Screening and Panel

Join The Arctic Refuge Defense Campaign on November 18th from 6:30pm – 7.30pm at the Charleston County Main Library for a screening of ‘The Refuge,’ an intimate look at the decades-long struggle of the Gwich’in Nation to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil and gas drilling.

The Arctic Refuge Defense Campaign will speak about how their environmental efforts directly tie into standing with the Gwich’in Nation to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil and gas drilling and how Charlestonians can help with these efforts: no distance is too far when opposing oil and gas drilling in our wildernesses!

The screening will be followed by a panel featuring local environmental, community, and business actors. The panel members will speak to how drilling for oil and gas in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge will have serious negative biological, cultural, and climate impacts in both the rapidly-warming Arctic and globally.

The Arctic Refuge Defense Campaign will be facilitating a social media station where attendees can tag the oil and gas corporations who are going to purchase land in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to increase the groundswell of consumer pressure on these corporations.

Last, but certainly not least, if you can’t make it, please tell at least 5 friends!

This event is sponsored by the Conservation Voters of South Carolina.
