Film: Chasing Ice

user0 Comments

Chasing Ice is the Emmy winning story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.

We will have ice cream to share.

user0 Comments

“The Transformative Bail Reform” curriculum was developed through the collaborative efforts of 20 Black led base building organizations who came together to discuss the implications of bail and bail reform on Black communities across the country. This training centers the Black community, one of the communities most impacted by oppressive policing and mass incarceration, as an expert at formulating alternatives to pretrial detentions and incarceration.

LGBTQ Today

user0 Comments

What’s it like to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning in 2017? As our society welcomes further exploration of what equality and equity mean, a generation is coming of age. That generation has much to say and offer about the world; as they position themselves into our society, what does it mean for them to have LGTBQ identity and how can other generations offer support, encouragement, hold space, and learn from this generation? Conversation will include a panel discussion, a Q & A with the audience, and more than a few jokes.
