The Dear South Carolina Tour is a collaboration between Conservation Voters of South Carolina, Exposure Labs, creators of Chasing Coral, and a growing number of community groups hosting screenings across the state.

This story of our vanishing coral reefs has been hidden in our ocean – until now. By revealing this story in South Carolina as the state makes big decisions about its future energy and conservation policies, the tour aims to call on legislators to speed a transition to clean energy and protect the natural resources that fuel South Carolina’s economy.

In the Spring of 2014, Exposure Labs launched the Chasing Ice Ohio Tour where the team’s previous film was used to shift the conversation around climate change in central Ohio. The tour focused on elevating the voices of community members in one Congressional district, where Congressman Pat Tiberi (OH-12) was an outspoken climate denier. As with Chasing Coral, the time-lapse footage of glacier melt in Chasing Ice, was unprecedented evidence of the speed with which our climate and ecosystems are changing. Through waves of screenings across Tiberi’s district and sharing the film with him in person, he not only acknowledged climate change was caused by human activity, but went on to join the bipartisan Climate Solutions Caucus in 2017.
