Green New Deal Lifestream Watch Party!

Dear Democratic Friends of the Environment,
 Hope your 2019 is off to a good start! I’m writing to invite you to an event DECF is hosting with Sunrise Movement next week — the Green New Deal Livestream Watch Party.  On Tuesday, February 5th, Sunrise and the Democratic Environmental Caucus will be hosting a livestream event with special guests to lay out the movement’s collective plans to win back power in the 2020 elections and secure the lasting change on climate we need — a Green New Deal. (Watch this video. . . .)

 The event will be livestreamed to Watch Parties all across the country, including right here in Davie. After the livestream, our group — Sunrise and the Broward Chapter of the DECF — will talk to you about how we’re going to bring the Green New Deal and Sunrise to our community.
We will hear from Citzen’s Climate Lobby about The Energy Innovation & Carbon Dividend Act (H.R. 763), “the most aggressive climate legislation *ever* introduced in the USA and the only plan on track with IPCC targets for reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.”  This seems like something you might be interested in, and we would love to have you join us! Do you think you can make it?  You can RSVP here and feel free to reach out with any questions you have.  We’re excited to hear from such inspiring leaders and talk with people from our community about what we can do together!
Please join us from 7:00 – 9:00 PM at 9170 W. State Road 84, Davie , FL 33324, Dunkin Donuts Conference Center. Hope you can make it and that you are well! Space is limited. RSVP’s are required.  Best regards, Adrienne Kaltman, Chair, Broward Chapter Democratic Environmental Caucus

On Thursday, January 24, the Democratic Environmental Caucus presents “Eating Animals,” a special film event at the Davie Multipurpose Center, 3801 S. Pine Island Road, Palm Room, Davie, Florida 33328 at 6:45-9:00 PM. “The book Eating Animals offers the kind of wisdom that, in all its humanity and clarity, deserves a place at the table with our greatest philosophers.”- Los Angeles Times. Please join us for this thought provoking film co-produced and narrated by Natalie Portman.

How much do you know about the food that’s on your plate? Based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer, narrated by co-producer Natalie Portman, and directed by Christopher Quinn, Eating Animals is an urgent, eye-opening look at the environmental, economic, and public health consequences of factory farming. Tracing the history of food production in the United States, the film charts how farming has gone from local and sustainable to a corporate Frankenstein monster that offers cheap eggs, meat, and dairy at a steep cost: the exploitation of animals; the risky use of antibiotics and hormones; and the pollution of our air, soil, and water. Spotlighting farmers who have pushed backed against industrial agriculture with more humane practices, Eating Animals offers attainable, commonsense solutions to a growing crisis while making the case that ethical farming is not only an animal rights issue but one that affects every aspect of our lives.
