Rise Beyond Gold film now available online after premier at Wild & Scenic Film Festival!
A quaint community in the Sierra Foothills of northern California faces down a foreign corporation that would take the gold from under their property, threaten the drinking water supply, and leave a toxic legacy behind. Our film, Rise Beyond Gold, highlights the community's response as well as scientific perspectives about this proposal to re-open the Idaho Maryland Mine in Nevada County, CA.
Rise Beyond Gold also raises bigger questions for the world at large. Why do we desire gold, and ultimately, is it worth it?
The Environmental Impact Review for the mine proposal has been released, which means Nevada County is accepting public comments until April 4th, 2022.
Rise Beyond Gold premiered at Wild & Scenic Film Festival in 2021 and was the inspiration for an activism workshop as part of the festival. View that workshop here, including opening comments from the film's director, Jennifer Ekstrom. Stay tuned for additional screenings and workshops in support of the open comment period!

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe declared victory after a federal court ruled that Dakota Access Pipeline must be shut down and drained until a full Environmental Impact Statement is written. But while oil continues to flow, a contractor with vested interest in the pipeline is working on the review. You can help stop this abuse of power.
New pipeline, port, rail and other petroleum export infrastructure projects are being pushed through the regulatory process under the cloak of the COVID-19 pandemic. While we are told these projects are going to bring energy independence to the United States, in reality they are all designed to export our natural resources.
