Christians must lead with love as we seek to care for God's world and to love our neighbors. To do so, we must listen to those who are harmed the most by the exploitation of creation. The Evangelical Environmental Network, along with our partners at Young Evangelicals for Climate Action, are pleased to partner with the Condor and Eagle team to do just that. This virtual event during Creation Care Week will guide us as we encounter the inspiring work of land defenders around the world and as we work together toward a flourishing future for all.
This event is inclusive--free to those who can't afford it. For all others, suggested donations on a sliding scale of $15-100 are requested in lieu of a flat ticket price. Your support will support the Eloheh Indigenous Center for Earth Justice, a living-learning community in the Pacific Northwest committed to stewarding the land, preserving biodiversity, and enacting indigenous principles of harmony and balance with the land. The donations collected will also support the film impact campaign "No More Sacrificed Communities" and be used to provide small honorariums to our panelists.
JOIN US, YOU WILL BE INSPIRED!

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 40 online events until July, 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!
