Wed, Oct 07, 2020 7:00 PM – Wed, Oct 07, 2020 9:00 PM In the Water: Virtual Film Screening and Q&A Panel

Online Event

Just Transition NWI invites you to a virtual documentary screening of In the Water, a film by Beth Edwards of the Indiana Environmental Reporter about the issue of coal ash pollution in Indiana. The film spotlights the Town of Pines in Northwest Indiana (NWI), whose drinking water and soil were poisoned by coal ash due to negligence on the part of the local utility, NIPSCO. This screening is especially timely due to the threat of NIPSCO proposing to dig up and haul thousands of cubic yards of coal ash from their Michigan City and Bailly plants through NWI communities.

The film screening will lead into a Q&A and community discussion with the following panelists:

– Beth Edwards, Director of In the Water and writer and producer for the Indiana Environmental Reporter

– Cathi Murray, Resident of Town of Pines and founding member of P.I.N.E.S (People in Need of Environmental Safety)

– Lisa Evans, Senior Counsel with Earthjustice

– Michael Mack, Vice President of the Michigan City Council, Ward 3 Councilman and Council Liaison with the Michigan City Sustainability Commission

– Dr. Indra Frank, Environmental Health and Water Policy Director with the Hoosier Environmental Council

The public will have the opportunity to submit their questions to the panel. This film screening is free to the public and is not rated, but should be suitable for older children.
