Friday, July 13, 2018 at 7:20 pm: Oceans Away!


We're heading for the beach this month -- to check out the health of our waters, sea life and human life. Plastics and other refuse decompose slowly or not at all. And huge amounts of these discards accumulate in our oceans, streams -- and blood streams -- polluting terribly. Come as you are in cool summer cut offs-- to wade with us into such problems -- and dive with us into the solutions.

 

Friday, August 10, 2018 at 7:20 pm: Fight for $15: Raise the Wage Naperville/DuPage


Tonight we’ll watch part of the compelling, award-winning documentary series “Hard Earned”, produced by Kartemquin Films. Viewers follow five families at work and at home, as they juggle the rising costs of housing, education, food, medical bills and more – all while working low-wage jobs. As widening economic inequality and the wealth gap continue to increase in the U.S., we see first-hand: how these working-class families struggle to get ahead; and how wage stagnation, student loan debt, and demographic shifts in the workforce contribute to financial instability. For more information on the film, go to www.hardearnedseries.com. Then, with representatives of the Workers’ Center at Immigrant Solidarity DuPage, we’ll discuss film, analyze benefits and costs of raising the minimum wage, and other alternatives such as worker-owned enterprises. Come and bring friends and neighbors to discuss issues and join campaign to raise the minimum wage and defend worker rights.

Our timely issues programs are free and open to the public, no reservations required. Parking is free, too. Just Views shows great films about matters vital to social and economic justice on second Fridays monthly--year ‘round.
