Kenji Yamamoto Mar 15, 2018
"Rebel With A Cause"

Kenji and Nancy are the producers and directors of a documentary on how and why we have the parks around us.  You will probably know a few of the people who are featured in this presentation. 

Beginning in the 1950s, a ragtag group of disparate citizens banded together to protect and preserve open spaces near urban areas from rampant development and, in so doing, brought about America's system of national seashores and recreation areas.  How they pulled off this incredible feat is the heart of REBELS WITH A CAUSE, the stunningly beautiful new documentary narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Frances McDormand.

Their hard fought campaign crosses party lines, overcomes seemingly insurmountable obstacles, and illustrates that passionate individuals have the power to influence the entire nation.  In the end, the efforts of these rebels set new precedents for protecting open space and shaped the environmental movement as we know it today. 

Feel free to invite a friend.  This will be a wonderful meeting!
