Come to the historic Homestead Works Pump House for a free screening of Gaswork. This compelling documentary film by Pennsylvania filmmaker Josh Fox investigates the dangerous working conditions in the oil and gas fields, exposing workers to chemicals whose long-term impacts are yet unknown. The fatality rate of oil field jobs is seven times greater than the national average. This film is a powerful opportunity to educate and mobilize for action. It includes interviews with workers who have suffered and families of workers who have been killed in the gas fields. But it also offers hope.
Patty DeMarco, a local leader in energy, economic development, and environmental policy analysis will comment on the film. Representatives from local unions will also comment.
7:30 p.m. at the Homestead Works Pump House (880 Waterfront Drive, Munhall PA 15120). Free & open to the public, refreshments available. Sponsored by Battle of Homestead Foundation.
