Q&A with #ValveTurner Ken Ward, and director Lindsey Grayzel after the film! Bring your questions! [Ken and Lindsey will join virtually.]
Film synopsis:THE RELUCTANT RADICAL follows activist Ken Ward as he confronts his fears and puts himself in the direct path of the fossil fuel industry to combat climate change. Ken breaks the law as a last resort, to fulfill what he sees as his personal obligation to future generations.
After twenty years leading environmental organizations, Ken became increasingly alarmed by both the scientific evidence of climate change and the repercussions for civilization as we know it. Ken pushed for a crisis level response from inside environmental organizations.
Those efforts failed, and he now embraces direct action civil disobedience as the most effective political tool to deal with catastrophic circumstances.
Director: Lindsey Grayzel
Speakers: Ken Ward and Lindsey Grayzel will join virtually following the film.
Prior to the movie we will have a short update on Divest for Justice -- divestment campaign for peace and environmental and social justice.
