Mount Baker Meaningful Movie -                    Racing Extinction

April 27th
Doors open at 6pm; Movie starts at 6:30.

Please join us for this incredible film. This is a film that will inspire you to take action to protect this incredibly beautiful planet of ours!

In Racing Extinction, a team of artists and activists exposes the hidden world of extinction with never-before-seen images that will change the way we see the planet. Two worlds drive extinction across the globe, potentially resulting in the loss of half of all species. The international wildlife trade creates bogus markets at the expense of creatures that have survived on this planet for millions of years. And the other surrounds us, hiding in plain sight — a world that the oil and gas companies don’t want the rest of us to see. Using covert tactics and state-of-the-art technology, the Racing Extinction team exposes these two worlds in an inspiring affirmation to preserve life as we know it.

This screening is part of a larger network of Meaningful Movie screening events across Seattle. You can find more info here: https://meaningfulmovies.org/mmp-spring-...

Please note that we will be holding a raffle for the Rick Turner Memorial Fund to support the Meaningful Movie Project.

Also, food donations for our Rainier Valley Food Bank are always welcome!
