Sustainable Lafayette Film Series Summer 2016

Sustainable Lafayette Summer Film Series “Rebels with a Cause” will be on Tuesday, July 26th at 6:30pm at the Lafayette Library's Community Hall. The film is “Rebels with a Cause,” the story of a regional California effort that grew into an astonishing system of 14 National Seashores — the result of garden clubs, ranchers, farmers, conservationists, politicians from both parties, widows, and volunteers working together through compromise and negotiation, with the American public coming up as the winner.

Marissa Walker, from the Marin Agricultural Land Trust shared: “I can’t recommend this film enough as a tool for inspiring local change. Although the film tells a local story about the San Francisco Bay Area, it reaches far beyond our little slice of the country. It’s also helpful in terms of describing the importance of land trusts in large-scale land preservation and environmental campaigns. A terrific tool for community engagement.”
A $10 donation is requested, $5 for students, and cookies, snacks, coffee and beverages will be served.

We are thrilled to thank Marin Clean Energy for generously sponsoring the 2016 Film Series. The City of Lafayette has joined MCE to give electric customers the option to purchase more renewable electricity as an alternative to PG&E’s energy supply.
