Free the River Park: Thursday, July 17th
The film explores citizens’ ultimately victorious efforts to create and preserve at-grade access to the Schuylkill River Park despite the adamant objections of CSX Railroad.
The 15-minute film chronicles the protracted grass-roots fight against CSX and the company’s effort to block the community’s access to the Schuylkill River, and serves to inspire and instruct other organizations on how to successfully wage efforts to improve and protect their own communities.
