Hosted by the SOCAN-Ashland Climate Action Project
Come together with Eastern Oregonian community leaders on zoom for a beautiful film and facilitated discussion on January 28 @ 7pm
Living in a deeply divided country, we are all feeling the wounds and grief of bitter partisanship. These divisions have led us to fear and dehumanize each other and close off communications. How can we write a new chapter to this story–right here in Oregon?
To help us along this journey, the Ashland Climate Action Project of Southern Oregon Climate Action Now (SOCAN) will host a second screening of “Other Side of the Hill” on Thursday January 28, 7-8:30pm. The film spotlights Eastern Oregon communities that have embraced renewable energy projects, defying stereotypes about climate change attitudes in conservative rural Oregon.
Following the 30-minute film, community leaders featured in the film will join us for a discussion facilitated by Titus Tomlinson, Program Director of the Resource Assistance for Rural Environments (RARE) program at the University of Oregon’s Institute for Policy Research and Engagement.
