You and your friends are invited to join us for the Santa Cruz premiere of the award-winning film, Mother: Caring for 7 Billion.

Mother is a groundbreaking film that reveals the compelling challenges we face in a world of over 7 billion. It tells the story of Beth, an American mother and child's right activist, and her journey to make sense of how and why the empowerment of women and girls around the world is so intricately linked to our fate on this fragile planet.

Mother features world-renowned experts to help explain one of the most persistent controversies in our culture that touches gender equity, religion, reproductive health and the environment. It is a film of hope and shows us the strength of the human spirit to make a better world.

    What do all these "good to see you" remarks have to do with the event? Are these part of the meet up messaging?

    I feel uncomfortable about those "Good to see you" automatic comments that come after meetups too. I wish they would go away.

    I could bike, and I will be coming from Seabright Beach by the Natural History Museum.

    This was a challenging presentation of population, the economy of consumption, the distribution of resources, the survival of community and family, women as creative forces of change, the power of media to warp and to shape our values, the need to re-think how we show what we value.

    I loved it. I thought it was strong enough to appeal to many, and yet not in people's face. I personally am an ecological socialist of sorts, and despise the way Capitalism is colonizing everything and everybody like a virus.
