Stop Danskammer is a short documentary set in Newburgh, NY, which shows how environmental and racial justice are two sides of the same coin. On one side, we meet local activists working hard to keep a fracked gas power plant from opening in their city--and who would think they would have to in a state where fracking is banned? On the other, we learn that dangerous projects like this are often built in communities of color, where developers believe the residents are least likely to defend themselves from the air and water pollution the projects cause. But the community of Newburgh refuses to conform to these expectations, and are standing up to say "Stop Danskammer!"
