EEF usually conducts a 3 day morning till night environmental film festival with John Jay College of Criminal Justice in their Student Dining Hall each spring.  This year we are partnering to show The Eagle and the Condor, and to hold a panel discussion about how colleges can help protect nature and support Indigenous tribes and other nature defenders. 

Sustainability is often defined as “Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”  Nature is left out.  The time has come to build a movement to incorporate nature into sustainability and to support Indigenous and other nature defenders. Join us, you will be inspired!

    This event is inclusive, free to those who can't afford it. For all others, suggested donations on a sliding scale of $10-$100 are requested in lieu of a flat ticket price. The Environmental Education Fund will make a donation for students and adjunct faculty who attend.  

    The contributions will benefit the Ramapough Lenape Nation, Turtle Clan who are creating a farm  for their food sovereignty and for educating their families in sustainable agriculture and the traditional ways of their ancestors and to the film's impact campaign "No More Sacrificed Communities" to keep supporting the incredibly important work of the film's protagonists. Please give generously according to your financial ability.


    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 Impact Series was very successful as more than 15K people watched our film, we raised more than $90K for frontline communities and 500K+ people watched our panel discussions!

    We therefore decided to keep organizing events on an even larger scale: we are currently organizing online events, 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!

    Chief Vincent Mann, Turtle Clan Chief of the Ramapough Lenape Nation, which encompasses Passaic and Sussex Counties in New Jersey, as well as Warwick and surrounding areas in New York. Since 2008, Chief Mann has tirelessly worked to help his community survive and fight back in light of the Ford Motor Company’s toxic dumping on the Ringwood Mines superfund site. He is also currently co-creating the United Lunaapeewak to restore Lunaape culture and provide educational opportunities across the region. Chief Mann is a Trustee of the Highlands Coalition and a former member of the Ringwood Mines superfund site’s Citizen Advisory Group (CAG). He recently co-founded the Munsee Three Sisters Medicinal Farm with Michaeline Picarro to create local jobs but more importantly to bring back food sovereignty to his Clan. He works with many universities on projects related to his people, including the NYU and Ramapo College Environmental Science programs, the Price Institute at Rutgers Newark, and Design program at Rutgers New Brunswick. The Russ Berry Foundations awarded Chief Mann their highest honor for being an Unsung Hero for his efforts, even though he maintains that the true Unsung Heros are the citizens of the Turtle Clan. Chief Mann regularly lectures on environmental justice and the importance of indigenous knowledge. Chief Mann gives land acknowledgments across New Jersey and New York in honor of his ancestors and offers up prayers for humanity and for our natural world.
