Join us for a national day of action focused around political corruption and climate stalemate. On April 17th, be part of a nationwide screening of the powerful film The Island President – "as one of the most low-lying countries in the world, a rise of three feet in sea level would submerge the 1200 islands of the Maldives enough to make them uninhabitable." The film will be followed by a national webinar with the Director, Jon Shenk, Former UN Deputy Permanent Representative to the Maldives, Thilmeeza Hussain, and May Boeve, head of 350.org, and is sponsored by C2C Fellows and the Bard Center for Environmental Policy.

The Island President links the struggle for democracy and human rights with the fight to stabilize the climate. This is the exact challenge facing us right here in the United States. Billons of dollars in fossil fuel money is corrupting our democracy and poisoning the future.
