Urban Action 6/28

This week's calls to action include the following events and activities. (All are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.)

Film urges action on climate

Metro Justice will show the documentary film "This Changes Everything" on Friday, June 29. The film, by director Avi Lewis, looks at the issue of climate change through sketches of its profound impact on seven different communities on different continents. The program is the first event in Metro Justice's five-week Building Resistance Workshop Series, all of which will be held at 1115 East Main Street, Door 7, Suite 207-A, at 5:30 p.m.

Discussing African-American history

The Moving Beyond Racism Book Group will meet on Monday, July 3, to discuss W.E.B. Du Bois' "The Souls of Black Folk." The book, written in 1903, is considered by many to be a classic in American literature and is among the most important examinations of African-American history and sociology. Du Bois' essays, some scholars say, are particularly relevant today. The discussion will be held at Barnes and Noble, Pittsford Plaza, at 7 p.m. Reading the book prior to the event isn't required.
