WESTERN WASHINGTON AND BEYOND

  • MEANINGFUL MOVIES PROJECT: free films and discussions

The Meaningful Movies Project supports local groups offering free film showings and discussions on justice issues.  Before the Covid-19 pandemic, these were in-person gatherings, with dozens of groups in Western WA, a couple in Eastern WA, and a couple further away.  This project was initiated almost 20 years ago by Wallingford (Seattle) Neighbors for Peace and Justice, a member of the Sound Nonviolent Opponents of War (SNOW) Coalition.  Meaningful Movies continues its mission showing socially conscious movies during the pandemic with online showings.  See  http://www.meaningfulmovies.org for general information and https://meaningfulmovies.org/events/ for the current listings.  [confirmed 9/7/20]
