About Our Group:

 

“Our goal is to bring Islanders together through education and advocacy, using the power of social and environmental justice documentary films and discussion. We gather in a spirit of “We’re All in this Together” and by hearing the stories and learning the situations faced across the planet, we can support bold strokes toward social justice. This monthly community event is intended to educate, inspire, connect, and help Islanders rise up and champion effective, non‐violent solutions that will build a more peaceful and just world.”
