American Addict – Fourth Friday Film Forum

american addict

Friday July 25 at 7:00 PM

Unitarian Universalist Community Community of the Mountains

246 South Church Street, Grass Valley, CA

Cost:  by Donation

The United States’ appetite for prescription drugs is the focus of this sober documentary, which aims to illuminate a national health crisis. Americans represent just 5% of the world population but consume 80% of its pharmaceuticals. This documentary tracks the growth of this problem, the pharmaceutical companies’ stake in nurturing pill-popping habits, and the FDA’s negligence in policing what is made available to the public. “American Addict” exposes and condemns those who have profited from this situation, but reminds the consumer that we have a duty to educate ourselves.

Join The Fun!

CA Democratic Party Adopts Peacebuilding Platform

Dept Peace

PEACEBUILDING AT THE CA DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION IN LOS ANGELES

By Nancy Merritt, CA Peace Alliance

The California Democratic Party (CDP) adopted language by the California Peace Alliance calling for promotion of national institutions “based on the organizing principles of violence prevention and nonviolent conflict resolution, utilizing and developing a network of ‘best practice’ peacebuilding policies and programs, both within UN member states, and externally among nations.”

 We took our message of peacebuilding to the recent CDP convention in Los Angeles (March 7-9, 2014) and succeeded in getting new peacebuilding language into the 2014 CDP Platform, and in retaining most of our 2012 CDP Platform language.

We also collected letters to almost all of California’s Congressional delegation — to 51 of 53 CA Representatives — urging them to cosponsor Department of Peacebuilding legislation (DoP/ HR808), which was introduced by Congresswoman Barbara Lee (CA-13) in February 2013.
