The Climate for Change is Now: "Paris to Pittsburgh" Film Screening

In July 2017, President Trump announced his decision to pull the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement, saying he was “elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”
Pittsburgh Mayor William Peduto immediately responded: “I can assure you that we will follow the guidelines of the Paris Agreement for our people, our economy & future.” Pittsburgh is one of the many cities leading the fight on climate change, and Mayor Peduto’s response inspired the title of this film.
"Paris to Pittsburgh" brings to life the incredible actions of individuals, communities, businesses and local governments to combat the threat of climate change in their own backyards. Set against the national debate over the energy future of the U.S. — and the Trump administration’s explosive decision to exit the Paris Agreement — the film captures what’s at stake for Americans around the country, and the inspiring ways they’re responding.
Light refreshments will be served.
