May 17th - Movie Night: "The Reluctant Radical"
Join us for a movie night on Friday, May 17th at 6:00 pm at the Auburn Library. We're showing "The Reluctant Radical," an intimate portrait of climate activist Ken Ward.
Ken breaks the law as a last resort – and with great trepidation, to fulfill what he sees as his personal obligation to future generations. The film follows Ken through a series of civil disobedience direct actions, culminating with his participation in the coordinated action that shut down all the U.S. tar sands oil pipelines on October 11, 2016. Facing 20 years in prison for his actions, the film reveals both the personal costs and also the fulfillment that comes from following one’s moral calling.
