This screening follows screenings held by SOCM, Working Films and Sierra Club, Tennessee Chapter in Kingston in February and Gallatin in March. Speakers will be on hand from SOCM and SEA to discuss the work each organization does, and offer advice on how to become involved in organizing on issues important to the student body and the local community.
