July 6, Friday, 7pm “What the Health”
We follow filmmaker, Kip Andersen, as he uncovers the impacts of highly processed industrial animal foods on our personal health and greater community, and explores why leading health organizations continue to promote the industry despite countless medical studies and research showing deleterious effects of these products on our health.
July 22, Sunday, 4pm “Bag It “
Try going a day without plastic. Plastic is everywhere and infiltrates our lives in unimaginable and frightening ways. In this touching and often flat-out-funny film, we follow "everyman" Jeb Berrier, who is admittedly not a tree hugger, as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies.
July 25, Wednesday, 7:00 PM Climate Reality Leaders “If You've Only Got Five Minutes for the Planet...”
Come learn about the fundamentals of grassroots climate action with three Climate Reality Leaders who trained with Al Gore. Not only will you hear the abbreviated climate reality talk, but you'll learn tactics for generating change in your own community that allow you to take action in small ways when you have the time. In fact, everyone will leave this presentation having completed one act of grassroots activism. So even if you've only got time for the planet for this one evening, you can be guaranteed to make an impact!
Please email us if you would like to attend so we can provide the proper materials. Email Shanti at firstname.lastname@example.org
