Helms Bakery Partners With VisionLA To Screen “Faith Against Fracking”
December 7, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
Join us on Monday, December 7th from 7:30 – 9:30pm for an evening of films including the screening of Faith Against Fracking.
In this short film, several faith leaders discuss the importance of protecting creation, stopping climate change, and coming together in the interests of stewarding the planet for future generations.
Faith Against Fracking is not only a film but a community of faith leaders and people of faith calling on world leaders to ban fracking and other extreme fossil fuel extraction techniques. A fundamental cornerstone of most, if not all faiths, is the imperative to protect creation. Pope Francis’ recent Encyclical on Climate Change called on all people living in our common home to be good stewards of the planet, “to protect the world, and not prey on it.”

The VisionLA ’15 Climate Action Arts Festival is the first-ever multi-disciplinary arts festival throughout the greater Los Angeles area organized to give artists a voice in the increasingly urgent conversation around climate change, resource use and environmental social justice. The festival is an all-volunteer, grassroots effort organized by artists for artists, and for the Los Angeles community as a whole. This first year, the festival is timed to coincide with the UN’s COP21 Global Climate Conference in Paris, from November 30 through December 11, to raise awareness of this important milestone in the international call for strong carbon emissions standards.
