Stand Up! Rise up! Film Festival
March 22: As part of ECOMB's Cinema Green, CLEO co-hosted the final movie screening of the Stand Up! Rise Up! Film Festival at Miami Dade College on Wednesday, March 22. Over 100 attendees got to watch the documentary Revolution, followed by a panel moderated by our own Caroline Lewis. The panelists included Captain Dan Kipnis (Climate Reality Project speaker), Dr. John Van Leer (Citizens Climate Lobby), Daniella Levine Cava (MDC Commissioner), Jim Murley (MDC Chief Resilience Officer), and Salua Rivero (Miami Dade College's "Yes Club" Student President). Each panelist spoke briefly about their work and what they thought needed to be done, in terms of climate resilience, throughout the next couple of years. After being asked what actions we can take to help drive climate action, Commissioner Cava had one response, "Run for office."
