Come absorb some of the most insightful films, documentaries and commentaries across a wide spectrum of relevant topics of today and tomorrow. Urban Alliance for Sustainability's Green Movie Night provides a casual space for you to meet others in the local sustainability movement and encourages lively, open discussion. Local organizations working on the theme of the month participate in a Q/A discussion with the goal of creating effective collaborations and solutions.

Color of Sustainability
LaDonna Redmond describes how she has organized a community in Chicago that is working to develop local solutions to the issue of local food access. She and her husband formed a non-profit organization and obtained several vacant lots, and converted those lots to urban farm sites, and hired people from the community to work on those sites.

Get it Together
A positive, fast-paced look at the contributions young people of all races are making to transform their communities and protect their environment. Produced by youth for youth, the video begins by broadly defining "environment" to include urban blight as well as pollution.
