Monthly climate change action and education movie series have been popping up all over the state. NCIPL is pleased to announce that another movie series begins this month in Charlotte. “Speaking Truth to Power: The Justice Series” is co-sponsored by the Spiritual Activist Group at Unity of Charlotte, Charlotte Energy Solutions, and NCIPL. Discussion, with a moderator will follow, each movie.
The first movie in the series is What a Way to Go: Life at the End of Empire. This movie traces the roots of empire to the current grim realities of the modern world, economically, politically and environmentally. Join us at Unity of Charlotte, 401 E. Arrowood Avenue, on March 23, 7 p.m. for the kick-off of this new series. Suggested donation is $5, and free popcorn and beverages will be served.
NCIPL also recently partnered with the Temple Emmanuel Environmental Movement (TEEM) of Greensboro and now co-sponsors their “Movie and a Speaker” night. Each month, TEEM shows an environmental movie and then invites a speaker to help the group explore ideas of what they can do about the featured issue. In Raleigh, NCIPL Steering Committee member Larry Petrovick has brought together NCIPL and St. Francis of Assisi to host a monthly “Movie and a Potluck” series. They are similarly exploring environmental issues, leaders, and ideas to become a more aware and action-inspired community.
