On Tuesday, September 27 at 7PM, we will be screening the documentary film, “Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai”. This is a powerful film about an incredible woman, who founded the Green Party in Kenya as well as the Green Belt Movement: poor women planting trees. They’ve planted over a million trees since its founding and have had dramatic direct confrontations with the military, whose interest is protecting the logging industry. Sadly, Wangari passed away on Monday at the age of 71. Come to our campaign office at 718 Market St. to learn more about this incredible woman and celebrate the resistance that continues. The film screening will be free but donations to Cheri’s campaign are always welcome. Bring some snacks and refreshments. Here’s the film’s website: http://takingrootfilm.com/
