For Wednesday

Climate Change, What's the Solution?

The first 40 minutes of Bastyr University's free evening panel discussion is going to be spent debating whether or not we humans are the root cause of global warming. But since the evidence of climate change is, despite certain parties' efforts, irrefutable, the majority of the discussion will revolve around what to do about global warming, not what caused it.

Four expert panelists from different industries will present four possible solutions to the looming problem: new technology, market solutions, play damage control, and social change.

Climate Change, What's the Solution?, Wed, Nov 12, 6–8:30pm, Bastyr University Auditorium, 14500 Juanita Dr NE, Free

For Thursday

Screening of "The Delano Manongs"

While it is Cesar Chavez who is most known for helping form the United Farm Workers Union, the movement itself closely tied to Chicano movement of the 1960s, Filipino farm workers also played a pivotal roll holding the torch for worker's rights.

"The Delano Manongs" is a short documentary that tells the story of the Delano grape strike of 1965, when the largely Filipino work force walked off the job in demand of equal pay, to be eventually joined by Chavez's then called National Farmworkers Association. The film will be followed by a discussion with the director and a community panel.

Screening of 'The Delano Manongs,' Thu, Nov 13, 6pm, UW Ethnic Cultural Theater, 3931 Brooklyn Ave NE, Free
