For the others, a suggested sliding scale donations of $25 or more are being requested in lieu of a flat ticket price, to make the film more accessible. The collected funds will purchase PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) for community members in Manchester, a neighborhood featured in the film - often seen as the world-most impacted community by petro-chemical industries.

By joining us for this screening, you are supporting effective movement-building towards powerful change and calls to action. This event is part of the film impact campaign "No More Sacrificed Communities".
Our first events in July were a huge success. 6.000 people watched our film, 150.000 watched our panel discussions and we raised more than $25.000 for impacted communities. We therefore decided to keep organizing events on an even larger scale: we are currently organizing more than 100 online events until December, mobilizing hundreds of communities and organizations, presenting to large audiences the inspiring work being done by land defenders across the Americas. Join us and support frontline communities!
