"A Concerned Citizen" Documentary Showing and Discussion with the Peninsula Peace and Justice Center at Los Altos Library

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Los Altos Library
Orchard Room

The Peninsula Peace and Justice Center  of Palo Alto presents a screening of the documentary "A Concerned  Citizen" and will lead a discussion following the film.

From the film description:

"A CONCERNED CITIZEN" documents the work of Dr. Riki Ott, a citizen activist who predicted the Exxon Valdez oil spill hours before it happened and came to the aid of her Alaskan community in their battle to get fair compensation for their loss of health and income.

More recently Riki, a toxicologist, author, and activist, has been organizing the Gulf coast communities as they struggle to recover from the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster. Taking the lessons she learned as an activist, she is also spearheading the campaign called Ultimate Civics, a complete civics curriculum she developed that empowers students to participate in their democracy. Recognizing the power of money in politics she advocates for a constitutional amendment to end corporate personhood, and to reform campaign finance laws. She lectures nationally and internationally, inspiring students from fifth grade through universities and adults to take action and showing by example how one person can make a difference."

Film length 41 minutes.
