Screening the Green Film: Last Call at the Oasis
Thursday, March 6 at 7 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall—1924 Cedar St.
The water supply is in the tank in more ways than one. Climate change and reckless use of water are conspiring to run us dry. Agricultural practices, corporate disregard for the environment and poor public planning are all part of the problem. Transition Berkeley invites you to join us for an evening of film and conversation about water. We'll learn more about the reasons the water supply is dwindling by viewing a 30 minute portion of the award winning film Last Call at the Oasis. In the discussion following the film we'll talk about solutions: setting statewide priorities for water use, harvesting rainwater, using grey-water for irrigation, recharging ground water and conservation.
Matt Freiberg from the City of Berkeley's Climate Action Coalition will give us an update on the state of our local water supply and information about water policy debates going on in California, as well as practical steps we can take to conserve water at home. During the discussion period we'll have an opportunity to talk to experienced gardeners who have converted their thirsty lawns to drought tolerant native plant gardens, home owners who've diverted their grey-water to fruit trees and practical folks who've found lots of ways to save and reuse water at home. This event is family friendly. Light and local refreshments will be served.

Question Mark Cafe
First Fridays at 11:30 a.m. in the Fireside Room—1606 Bonita Ave.
February: Potluck lunch and a very special presentation by Patrice Young. Join us for a well-rounded look at modern slavery and human trafficking. Role play and first-hand victim stories provide a deeper understanding of how personal circumstances create trafficking vulnerability. Have your questions answered and take away resources to learn more along with tools to actively fight slavery in your daily life.
The scourge of modern slavery/human trafficking embodies racism, sexism and social injustice. The anti-slavery movement focuses on the big picture of human rights as well as the specific areas of women’s rights, immigrant rights, workers’ rights and children’s rights. Recognizing these intersections and working collaboratively where the movements share common goals will benefit all with the power of a greater force of allies.
