Continue a month of Earth Day-centric actions with the Queens County Young Democrats (QCYD) and Powhatan Democratic Club, concluding with the People’s Climate March in Washington D.C. on April 29th!

Join us for a special screening of the Academy Award Winning Film, ‘An Inconvenient Truth.’ Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim follows Al Gore on the lecture circuit, as the former presidential candidate campaigns to raise public awareness of the dangers of global warming and calls for immediate action to curb its destructive effects on the environment. Premiering at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and opening in New York City and Los Angeles on May 24, 2006, the documentary was a critical and box-office success, winning two Academy Awards for Best Documentary Feature and Best Original Song.

Following the film, Gore founded The Climate Reality Project in 2006 which trained 1,000 activists to give Gore’s presentation in their communities. In December 2016, Al Gore announced that “An Inconvenient Sequel” will hit theaters at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.

Thank you to the Variety Boys & Girls Club of Queens for hosting us! FAMILY FRIENDLY; ALL ARE WELCOMED.
