Climate Change Documentary:
Paris to Pittsburgh

Thursday, April 25, 6:30 PM

Cabrillo College, Forum Lecture Hall, Room 450, Admission Free
TBE's Social Action Committee and the Green Team, together with the Cabrillo College Student Sustainability Council, are sponsoring a screening of Paris to Pittsburgh, a new National Geographic documentary about climate change. From coastal cities to the heartland, Americans are demanding and developing climate change solutions. As the weather becomes more deadly and destructive, they aren't waiting for Washington to act. Learn their incredible stories in Paris to Pittsburgh and be inspired to create change in our community.

Following the screening, former California Secretary of Natural Resources John Laird, 2nd District County Supervisor Zach Friend, and Director of Regeneración-Pájaro Valley Climate Action Nancy Faulstich, will discuss the film and climate change actions in our state and county.
