“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.”
— John Muir
“We are tied together in the single garment of destiny, caught in an inescapable network of mutuality. And whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.”
— Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“The same people the Sierra Club is fighting for attacking clean energy and climate change protection laws are the same people who are trying to restrict voting. We know that to protect our environment we must protect our democracy.”
— Michael Brune, executive director of the Sierra Club
Here’s an opportunity to see two really interesting films that tie into the Sierra Club’s Democracy Program. Please RSVP and thanks to the organizers of these events!
Movie Party in Charlotte: America Has a Koch Problem
Host: Ann H.
Where: CM Independence Reg. Library Conference Room (in Charlotte)
When: Saturday, Jun. 28, at 2:00 p.m.
What: We’re getting together to watch Koch Brothers Exposed: 2014 Edition. This acclaimed new release pulls back the curtain on Charles and David Koch, yanking them out of the shadows and exposing them for what they are: a self-interested, ultraconservative demolition crew hell-bent on crushing the Affordable Care Act, Social Security, the Environmental Protection Agency, and so much more. Will you join us?
Please RSVP at Yes, I’ll be there!
State of Conflict: North Carolina
This may be the timeliest movie we have done considering the recent lifting of the fracking ban in our state. Some counties are planning to sue the state around stopping the process. Please see the attached flier and come out for this movie and a planning session afterwards considering what we in Charlotte might do.
