      A Concerned Citizen: Civics in Action

      A CONCERNED CITIZEN is a documentary about Dr. Riki Ott, a whistleblower who predicted the Exxon Valdez oil spill hours before it happened. A toxicologist, author, and activist, Riki has been organizing the Gulf coast communities to recover from the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster. She is also helping to spearhead the campaign with Ultimate Civics, one that will introduce a Constitutional amendment to end corporate personhood, and to reform campaign finance and contributions. The film also shows viewers how other citizens have followed Dr. Ott's example to change and strengthen efforts to curb oil pollution of America's lands, rivers and coastal waters. "A must see video for anyone who wonders what he/she can do to change the world and needs a spark of inspiration." ~ Lisa Eargle "Provides the viewer with both a history of how we got into this environmental mess, as well as a roadmap for how to move forward...Highly recommended!" ~ Anne Miller, South Seattle Climate Action Network Come early at 5 pm to network and enjoy food and drinks at the bar. We will head for theater seats around 5:30 pm - bring food and drinks into the theater with you if you like. The film is around 40 minutes, followed by a discussion/Q&A with local activists. Free. Donations appreciated!
