Chasing Ice Ohio Tour
In Spring of 2014, we launched the Chasing Ice Ohio Tour with the goal to use the film to shift the political conversation around climate change. We focused the tour on one Congressional district, represented by Congressman Pat Tiberi (OH-12), who has been listed as a climate change denier. Nearly 10,000 people learned about Chasing Ice, 80 collaborating organizations join the movement and hundreds of constituents in the district reached out to the Congressman directly.
In response, Congressman Tiberi shifted his stance on the issue. The Tour serves as a case study for the level of impact that can a film can have to create change on our political system.
