Join us for a screening of ‘Disruption’, a fast-paced, cinematic journey through the wild world of climate change: the science, the politics, the solutions, and the stories that define the crisis at this critical point in the history of Earth.
The movie is close to an hour long, and afterward, we’ll have a discussion about what all of us can do together about this crucial issue.
The screening will prepare the way for the People’s Climate March in New York City on September 21st, when a vast quantity of people will converge in New York City for what may become the largest climate march in history to date. As we march, reported world leaders will be attending the UN for a special summit on the climate crisis.
URI students will join with people from other schools, community organizations, unions and hundreds of other groups from across the country and around the world for this historic occasion. We’ll take to the streets to demand the the climate justice that is within our reach.
There will be buses departing from Kingston and Providence to New York City on September 20th (Providence only) and 21st, and returning on Sunday, the 21st.
Tickets will be $30 round trip, with low-income tickets available for $15. You can purchase your bus tickets here.
There also is an RI site for donations.

That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world
