We are so excited to announce our 2020 Film Fest will be coming to you, our Rose Community, virtually in the fall! Stay tuned for more information.
Our annual Film Fest has always combined films, food, and fun into a memorable evening and one of the least-stuffy fundraisers around. This fall, we are taking the event virtual, to still bring you all the films and fun! So, plan to grab your favorite beverage and snack and join us from home, as we celebrate grassroots activism for our communities and the environment!

A Special Thank You to Our Amazing Speakers!
Our Special Guest Emcee, Anisha Desai, brought her expertise in movement building for justice, equity, and the environment to the stage! Her insights brought life to the connections between our films, the Rose Community, and the larger movement.
And our New Voices Team energized the audience, making a Call to Action to support youth who are leading the environmental justice movement!
