    An Inconvenient Sequel - Truth to Power screening

    "A decade after AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH brought climate change into the heart of popular culture, comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes — in moments both private and public, funny and poignant — as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion."

    Pizza from Vancouver Pizza Company. There will be GF and Vegan as well.

    Navigating Holiday Conversations (SURJ & BLM Vancouver)

    A community dialogue hosted by SURJ Clark County and Black Lives Matter Vancouver.

    Coming together during the holidays can represent the best of our families, but also the worst. With that comes a lot of anxiety as we prepare to be in fellowship together.

    We invite you to this community dialogue to encounter and participate in holiday conversations in a productive way, while respecting the humanity of the people that we love and care about.

    While we'd like to give you the tools to completely dismantle racism and systemic oppression, we know that's not realistic or possible. What we can offer you, is an opportunity to be in fellowship with others in similar experiences and a few tools to help you navigate more safely and grounded in your own truth.

    KWEL' HOY Totem Pole Journey in VancouverWA: We Draw the Line!

    The House of Tears Carvers of the Lummi Nation will travel again across the western United States and Canada with a totem pole to bring attention to proposed fossil fuel terminals, pipelines, and other facilities and the threat they pose to tribes and local communities.

    The journey follows the 2016 decision of the Corps of Engineers to deny the permit for the proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal coal terminal at Cherry Point based on its potential impacts on the treaty fishing rights of the Lummi Nation.

    This tour, Kwel’Hoy, We Draw the Line!, will celebrate victories, commemorate alliances, and prepare for the coming battles as we work together for the protection of mother earth.

    Join us in this unique, indigenous event that will connect us all to the local fights we face, like Tesoro's proposed oil by rail facility, with information about how to get involved. There will be a pop-up exhibit and video projections by The Natural History Museum in collaboration with Lummi Nation. Presenters and performers will thread together our hearts and minds because what moves us is also what motivates us.

    News or Noise: Separating Fact from Fiction in Today's Media
    free

    The way citizens get news has changed over the past 20 years, raising questions not only about how and where we get our news, but also about whether what we are exposed to is true and reliable. What sources are providing news? Which are dependable and trustworthy? What is real, and what is fake? How can I as a citizen navigate all of the options--with confidence?

    Join us to hear our panel of media experts talk about today's media and the news, followed by small group discussions.

    Forum @ the Library is made possible in cooperation with the Initiative for Public Deliberation, a project of Washington State University Vancouver.

    Light refreshments provided by Friends of Vancouver Community Library.

    Library events and programs are open to the public and provided at no cost.

    Registration for this event is recommended but not required. Please signup at http://www.fvrl.org/forum-library or call (360) 906-5000.
