Fighting Goliath: Texas Coal Wars
- Location: UT
- Marching Since: July 28, 2008
What happens in my community affects your community and what happens in yours, affects mine. It is with that in mind that I joined the Stop Global Warming Virtual March as a concerned citizen and on behalf of the Redford Center at the Sundance Preserve and our new short documentary film titled, >Fighting Goliath: Texas Coal Wars.
The film was made to support the story of an unlikely coalition of Texans that banded together to oppose the construction of 19 conventional coal-fired power plants that were slated to be built in the state. It is our way of giving other states and communities a model for what can happen when people take personal responsibility and get results. We want to let people know that they don’t have to give up hope.
To all those who have also joined the Virtual March, thank you for caring and learning, and asking tough questions and for raising your voices for the kind of community and future you will be proud to bestow on generations to come.
