Join us at the screening followed by conversation with BSEC Member and founder of Neges Foundation, Yoleine Gateau for awareness-building about small farmers, sustainable agriculture, and reforestation efforts. It’s also a fascinating look at corporate social responsibility and “green business” efforts: the film features the organization Timberland’s pledge to work with Haitian farmers to plant 5 million trees in Haiti over 5 years — and the challenges and successes they experience along the way.

This event is by donation, so pay or pledge what you can.

This event is part of a summer of programs connected with racial justice, this week intersecting with sustainability and climate change.
