The Story We Want
a five part documentary series
Dayna Reggero and the Climate Listening Project traveled across America with Moms Clean Air Force to meet with women who are working together to protect their families and communities. They listened to ordinary women—unsung heroes— confronting fossil fuel industries, climate change impacts, and a culture of extraction. These individuals are doing research, planting seeds of hope, and inspiring people across the country to share their stories, take action, and find solutions. The goal for the series is to connect audiences to inspirational moms across this country who challenge us all to join the chorus fighting for a better today and a healthy tomorrow.
Persistence: The Power of People and Prayer
How Women are Uniting to Create Solutions
We visited North Carolina to hear from women who are living with the realities of the coal industry. Tracey has health concerns, and has watched her family and friends struggle with their health for decades. She is trying to protect her children from toxic air and water pollution caused by coal and coal ash at Belews Creek. She is working together with Caroline and women across the region to pray solutions as fracking and climate change threaten to bring new concerns to their communities.
