- 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]
