Film Screening: "Fire and Flood: Queer Resilience in an Era of Climate Change"

View a sneak peek of the documentary, “Fire and Flood: Queer Resilience in an Era of Climate Change,” followed by facilitated discussion. This event is part of a state-wide initiative called Climate Preparedness Week, which includes approximately 50 climate change library events across the state.

"The Fire and Flood Film weaves together the narratives of 21 LGBTQ people from Puerto Rico and Northern California, to get deep down to the entangled roots of the systems that create climate change and lead to the social vulnerabilities that produce what some have started to term 'climate apartheid.' However, this story does more than unpack climate vulnerability in the LGBTQ community - it celebrates the wisdom, the history, the mutual aid efforts, and the enormous capacity for resilience within the LGBTQ community that lend important insights and tools for all life in this moment of transition." -Vanessa Raditz, Director/Producer
