Disruption, a Film by Kelly Nyks and Jared P. Scott

Please be our Guest and Invite your Friends to Attend! In partnership with UM’s Students for a Green Campus, the Department of Writing and Rhetoric would like to invite you to attend a screening of Disruption on Monday September 15 at 6:30pm in Lamar Hall 327.

What: “When it comes to climate change, why do we do so little when we know so much?” Disruption examines the devastating consequences of our inaction. The terrifying science, shattered political process, unrelenting special interests and civic stasis that brought us to this social, moral and ecological crossroads. This is the story of our moment in history. We are in an age of rapid social and planetary change. We’re the first generation to feel the impacts of climate disruption, and the last generation that can do something about it. The film makes a compelling call for bold action to tip the balance and build a clean energy future.

Why: Several bodies including New York-area community groups, international NGO’s, grassroots networks, and faith organizations are convening to collaborate on the People’s Climate March in September. The March is being organized in a participatory, open-source model. This means there isn’t a central “decision-making” body or single coalition. This March is going to be a success because of the work we all do together. Take initiative to organize your community, school, workplace, and neighbors. Find out how you can help, or how your organization can support the People’s Climate March at 350.org.
