UPCOMING EVENTS

MOVIE SCREENING: A PLASTIC OCEAN

Friday, February 15

7 p.m

On Friday, February 15 at 7 p.m., the Social Justice Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Poughkeepsie will present a screening of the movie A Plastic Ocean, at 67 South Randolph Avenue, Poughkeepsie.

Described as the most important film of our time by Sir David Attenborough, A Plastic Ocean explores the harsh reality of the unimaginable damage we are doing to our planet while dumping eight million tons of plastic into our oceans every year. In the film, journalist Craig Leeson travels to more than a dozen locations around the world to assess the conditions of the world’s most important natural resource: our water. Joining him on the journey is free diver Tanya Streeter and scientists from around the globe who are also dedicated to understanding the effects plastic has on the world’s oceans. What they uncover is deeply unsettling. But it’s through this film that Earth’s inhabitants can come up with solutions to address the problem. For more information, go to https://plasticoceans.org/about-a-plastic-ocean/.

The screening will be followed by audience discussion. Light refreshments will be served. Suggested donation: $5. For more information, email patla42@gmail.com or call 845-309-3853.

CLIMATE CHANGE PRESENTATION

February 24, 2019

2pm

As the global temperature rises and extreme weather events are increasingly common, we must amplify and advance the conversation about climate change. Please join Manna Jo Greene, Environmental Director for Hudson River Sloop Clearwater and Ulster County Climate Smart Committee Chair, to explore solutions to address the Global Climate Crisis here in the Hudson Valley and beyond.

Manna’s presentation will include using the four principles of the Natural Step (what we “take, make, break and fake”) to help understand the climate crisis and prepare for its inevitable consequences.

She will also explore how we can create more resilient local communities, with special emphasis on Climate Justice for our most vulnerable neighbors and locations.

Light refreshments will be served. The program is free and the public is welcome.
