Film Series and Discussions. We are partnering with the Wisconsin Sierra Club’s Environmental Film and Book Club to bring you a virtual series of interesting documentaries and discussions. From accessibility of public lands to health impacts of burning fossil fuels, examples of environmental injustice are deeply woven into environmental issues in Wisconsin. Explore the inequities rooted within environmental impacts with these films. Be part of bringing meaningful environmental films to our congregation in this series that will be on Zoom beginning this Fall. We hope to run our own in-person series in 2022.
