Projecting Change Weekend April 26, 2010

This past weekend I went to the Projecting Change Movie Festival with a couple of friends. It was a weekend full of movies that focus on environmental and human rights issues. There is so much to talk about I won’t be able to do all in one post and while I didn’t get a lot out of the panel speakers or Q&A sessions, the movies were thoughtful, heart-wrenching, interesting, maddening and hopeful. Today’s post is just an overview of the movies but I’ll get into them a bit more as the days go on.

Haiti—Local Heroes, Local Solutions April 5, 2010

While this support is welcomed and appreciated, what Haiti really needs is local training and local skills and that will allow for sustainable, long-term solutions to the poverty they face.
