Background:

In July 2016, Indigenous and other community organizers and advocates caravanned across the United States to gather stories from Indigenous communities at the forefront of work for a just transition from toxic to clean energy. Participants of all ages traveled thousands of miles to learn from front-line struggles to protect lands, air, waters, and health. This film is a living document of their journey.

For more information about the film and project, go to http://protectfilm.org/, and visit the film’s Facebook page,
