Join us for a free viewing of the documentary film Saving Jamaica Bay. Saving Jamaica Bay tells the story of how one community fought government inaction and overcame Hurricane Sandy to clean up and restore the largest open space in New York City, which had become a dumping ground for garbage, sewage, and bullet-riddled mobsters. Narrated by Academy-Award winning actress Susan Sarandon, Saving Jamaica Bay underscores the importance of citizen action and the role of urban nature in protecting our cities from the effects of climate change. Visit savingjamaicabay.com to learn more. Following the film, we will engage in a moderated discussion and enjoy a winter social complete with hot wassail.
