[Solidarity Action] Extinction Rebellion Kentucky presents THE RACE TO SAVE THE WORLD

Jul 08

The Race to Save The World is a climate documentary with a uniquely optimistic approach. It follows passionate activists whose single-minded focus is the creation of a sustainable world for future generations. These climate warriors, ages 15 to 72, are in the trenches fighting for a livable future, regardless of the personal cost. Emmy award-winning filmmaker Joe Gantz brings an urgent and intimate portrait of the protests, arrests, courtroom drama, and family turmoil these activists endure as they push for change. The Race to Save The World is an energizing call-to-action that inspires viewers to quit waiting on the sidelines and start making their voices heard.

Extinction Rebellion Kentucky: We act with peace and ferocious love in our hearts for these lands, for life.
