Reverend Bryon Shoffner says, “We are trying to get the word out to the community how awful polluting industries and certain publicly elected officials treat some human beings. The Documentary “Mossville” gives a real incident that fully shows why we have to stand up for environmental justice.”
We all pray for the surviving members of the Mossville Community and thank those who documented their struggle. We also thank the producers of “Mossville” for producing this documentary and making it available for free to the community. The public is invited to watch the documentary for free, for a limited time only, and register to participate in the panel discussion via Zoom.
