"Indivisible" is an award-winning documentary about the real people at the heart of our nation’s immigration debate. Renata, Evelyn, and Antonio were young children when their parents brought them to the U.S. in search of a better life; they were teenagers when their mothers, fathers, and siblings were deported. Today, they are known as Dreamers. Indivisible takes place at a pivotal moment in their lives, as they fight for a pathway to citizenship and a chance to be reunited with their loved ones. Frustrated with the stalled legislative process, the trio take matters into their own hands and petition for a special waiver that would allow them to leave the U.S to visit their families—and legally return. With the future of immigration reform uncertain, the three do not know if their trips are a once in a lifetime experience, or the beginning of true family reunification. Doors Open: 6 pm for snacks and conversation. Stay for immigration speaker & audience discussion. Co-Sponsors: immigrant support organizations, Mt. Baker Community Club, So. Seattle Climate Action Network.

Reinventing Power: America’s Renewable Energy Boom is an exciting and uplifting film that takes us across the country to hear directly from the people making our clean energy future achievable. These individuals are working to rebuild what’s broken, rethink what’s possible, and revitalize communities. Reinventing Power underscores the notion that jobs, economic growth and innovation don’t have to be sacrificed for a clean environment. The film focuses on people in eight states whose lives were changed by the renewable energy industry, while exploring various aspects of clean energy from innovation to installation. “Making this film we met incredible people who showed us the depth of this industry. Clean energy is helping people find new opportunities as our economy shifts. It’s bringing in steady revenue for our farmers, and it is driving breakthroughs in clean technology. We saw how clean energy is made and got to experience how it is changing people’s lives for the better in a deeply personal way.” Tony Valentino, Director This is a Sierra Club film. We’re excited to co-sponsor this screening with them. Doors open at 6 pm for snacks and conversation. FREE MOVIE & SNACKS. Stay for speaker and audience discussion. Donations gratefully accepted.
