John Jay College will be holding our second annual environmental film festival from 4/21-4/23showing award winning films from 8am-8pm.  These films are especially selected to inspire and offer solutions and to celebrate people taking on difficult challenges to protect the environment.  This year it is open to the public, so feel free to bring friends and family. 

  We are also holding a special film screening, panel discussion and reception on Wednesday, 4/22 - Earth Day Evening - starting at 7 pm.   The Louisiana, Isle de Jean Charles, home to a once thriving community of Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw Indians, is the first island (that we are aware of) in the mainland USA that must be evacuated due to rising seas.  We are showing the film Can’t Stop the Water, about the topic and then will have a panel discussion with the Chief and others from the tribe, as well as experts about their innovative plans to remain together and form a zero waste community.  This will be followed with a networking reception.  More information and registration for these free events is at  

  An Environmental Club was formed at last year’s festival and the club is interested in reaching out and inviting the Environmental clubs at your campuses.  I’m copying John Jay student, Kristin Craig, who is leading this effort.  If you could help her by providing the name of an environmental club contact name and email from your college, it would be most appreciated.
The MetroNY AIHA will be holding a meeting here at 5 pm on the 22nd and then going to the7 pm  event.  If you want to register for that meeting go to
