Racing Extinction

 

The Peace & Justice Center presents “Racing Extinction” a 2015 documentary about the ongoing Anthropogenic mass extinction of species and the efforts from scientists, activists and journalists to document it. Produced by Oscar-winning director Louie Psihoyos, who directed the documentary The Cove (2009), Psihoyos assembles a team of artists and activists intent on showing the world never-before-seen images that expose issues of endangered species and mass extinction. The film deals with several examples of the overarching theme of the Anthropocene Extinction, in that the spread of Homo sapiens has caused the greatest mass extinction in the history of the world, including global warming and poaching, and the efforts of scientists, photographers and volunteers to protect endangered species.

“Racing Extinction” shows Friday January 27, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at The Open Book (next to Sierra Mtn. Coffee Roasters) 671 Maltman Drive, Grass Valley. Come enjoy the film, and stay for the lively discussion to follow. $6.00-$10.00 suggested donation . Beverages and treats available for purchase.

Martin Luther King Jr.

MLK Memorial NPS 

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”


 

 

“If we are to have peace on earth, our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective.”

 

MLK Portrait

“I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.”


 

 

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

 

 

 

MLK carving

 

“It is not enough to say ‘We must not wage war.’ It is necessary to love peace and sacrifice for it. We must concentrate not merely on the negative expulsion of war, but the positive affirmation of peace.”

 

“True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.”


 

 

MLK memorial side

“We must come to see that the end we seek is a society at peace with itself, a society that can live with its conscience.”

 

“Every nation must now develop an overriding loyalty to mankind as a whole in order to preserve the best in their individual societies.”

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”

 

MLK

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

 

 

“We shall overcome because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”

 

“Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a better person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.
