The NorCal Resilience Network is excited to host a special pre-event Happy Hour for the 20+ organizations who have joined the Circle of Collaborators, and groups interested in joining as members. Meet other climate solutionaries while enjoying complementary drinks and appetizers before the showing of "The Response." Learn about what each other is doing and how we can support each other's projects and programs in the upcoming months. Thank you to Beyond Separation and Green Life (Circle of Collaborator members) for sponsoring the Happy Hour.

ABOUT THE EVENT:

You’re invited to the global premiere of “The Response,” Shareable’s 30-minute documentary about community-led disaster response and recovery featuring on-the-ground efforts in communities across Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

In the midst of all the hurricane-driven chaos, a quiet revolution has been slowly percolating on the island. The film explores how an impromptu community kitchen meant to help feed survivors in the town of Caguas quickly grew into an island-wide network of mutual aid centers (Centros de Apoyo Mutuo) with the ultimate aim of restoring power — both electric and civic — to the people.

Launching at Oakland's legendary Pro Arts Gallery & COMMONS with the Northern California Resilience Network and film producer, Tom Llewellyn, this benefit screening for Shareable will also feature an all-star panel discussion and celebration afterwards.

We’ll also celebrate NorCal Resilience Network's ‘Resilience Hubs’ initiative (a community-led network of spaces ready for anything). To catalyze more community action, all participants will get Shareable's new guide, “How to Create a Resilience Hub in Your Community".

One night only on July 24th. Buy your tickets today to join a celebration of “disaster collectivism,” those instances when communities make the bold decision to make transformational social change in the wake of disasters.
