Robert Redford narrates this multiple Emmy Award-winning short film featuring inspiring portraits of passionate and dedicated activists, including the community group that fought the coal-fired power plant in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood. These are true environmental heroes who have built strong grassroots support and have placed themselves squarely in harm’s way to battle intimidating adversaries. The New Environmentalists share common goals -safeguarding the Earth’s natural resources from exploitation and pollution, while fighting for environmental justice in their communities.
