Join us for an evening of learning, discussion, and action on the proposed reopening of the Gibbons Creek Coal plant near Bryan/College Station. The evening will start with a briefing on the situation by Dr. Leigh Turner, former Executive Director of the TAMU Career Center. Then we'll have a special screening of the documentary "Fighting Goliath: Texas Coal Wars." Narrated by Robert Redford and produced by the Redford Center and Alpheus Media, the film follows the story of Texans fighting a high-stakes battle for clean air. 

Following the film, join us for a panel discussion.
