    Our multmedia partnership of sharing conversation, stories, and film about environmental justice demonstrates how our local efforts to address climate change and environmental issues connect with the global movement for a Just Transition, which is to work for solutions aimed at achieving equitable governance, community driven solutions, renewable energy, and a regenerative economy.  During this three-day series culminating on Earth Day, people will share conversations about policies, stories, and see films about why environmental and climate justice matters and how frontline communities are bearing witness and developing solutions to the problems we face.  


    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 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!
