Join Global Justice Ecology Project for an evening of art and politics at Good Vibrations 

Photo Reception and Fundraiser Mixer

Join us for a special social mixer and info night featuring an update on Global Justice Ecology Project's climate justice and forest protection work, including their first hand analysis of the Copenhagen Climate talks, and where we go from here.

Also featured is a one-night-only photo exhibit by GJEP Co-Director/ Strategist Orin Langelle titled, The Roadmap to Extinction: Are Humans Disappearing?

Enjoy wine and nibbles while you meet the photographer and GJEP Executive Director Anne Petermann, from our main office in Vermont, and Hallie Boas, from our west coast desk, at this informal and informational reception.

About the Photo Exhibit:

This new photo exhibit by Orin Langelle premiered in Copenhagen, Denmark during the UN Climate Convention in December 2009.  The exhibit's theme is climate change and the possibility of human extinction.  Langelle's photographs reveal that time and existence are fleeting.  This visual warning and wake-up call confronts the viewer with a thought provoking portrayal of the ephemeral nature of life.  Orin Langelle trained as a photojournalist at the International Center of Photography.  This show is a departure from usual his documentary work.

More About Global Justice Ecology Project:

Global Justice Ecology Project has been on the cutting edge of the climate justice movement since 2004.  They have helped build the movement globally, co-founding the Durban Group for Climate Justice in Durban, South Africa in 2004, Climate Justice Now! in Bali, Indonesia in 2007, Climate Justice Action in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2008 and the North American Mobilization for Climate Justice also in 2008.

The founders of GJEP have been active in the movements for forest protection and Indigenous Peoples' Rights since 1991.
