2:00 PM – “This River Runs Forever”
Water from the Yakima River is the foundation for all life in our agricultural community. As water usage increases, how do we responsibly allocate it to sustain the needs of our various communities while also sustaining the life and health of the river itself? “This River Runs Forever” is a short documentary about the Yakima Basin Integrated Plan — a proposed collaboration between local farmers, the Yakama Nation, and recreational fishermen to ensure that the Yakima River is sustaining life in our valley for many generations to come.
Following the screening, Kelsey Green from the American Rivers organization will lead a discussion about the Yakima Basin Integrated Plan.
3:00 PM – “Little Stones”
We are thrilled to partner with the YWCA of Yakima to present the Washington state premiere of “Little Stones”, a powerful and emotional documentary experience. “Little Stones” unites the personal narratives of four women around the world using art to create positive change in their communities. From a graffiti artist speaking out against domestic violence in the favelas of Brazil to a dancer rehabilitating sex-trafficking survivors in India, each of these women is contributing a stone to the mosaic of the women’s movement through their art.
Following the screening, a panel of speakers will discuss various ways that we see and support survivors of violence against women in our community. Panelists include:
Cheri Kilty of the YWCA
Dave Hanson of Sunrise Outreach Center
Debbie Brockman of Aspen Victim Services
Corey Hodge of Heritage University
