About Our Group:

Meaningful Movies Olympia shows free social and environmental justice films and fosters discussions every 3rd Thursday of the month at the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Church from 6:30-9:00.

We are a coalition of interested groups and persons who believe that community grows stronger and engagement becomes more effective when we come together for education, discussion, and collaboration around social justice and environmental challenges.  We are an all-volunteer, non-sectarian, non-partisan community organization. We unite in hope to advocate justice.
