Join us at Patagonia SF for DISTRICT 15, a short documentary that follows young activists from Communities for a Better Environment (CBE) and their fight to end neighborhood oil drilling in Wilmington, California, the area with the most concentrated oil drilling and refining operations in urban America.
More than 750 oil wells are operating dangerously close to homes, schools, churches and hospitals and threatening the health of thousands of Angeleno families. Depicting court cases against the city of Los Angeles, actions in collaboration with Stand LA, photo essays, surveys of particulate matter, youth group meetings, canvassing and more, this short film shines light on the hope and tenacity of the youth in Wilmington, CA.
Activists from CBE and Poder are joining us for the film screening and will follow the film with a talk and time of Q&A. Good food and drinks will be available for you to enjoy at this free community event!
Thursday, February 20, 7 – 9 PM
