**NEW** Wedgwood Meaningful Movies
June 14, 2019 – The World Awaits (98 min, Don Haderlein, 2016)
The World Awaits: Noted philosopher Noam Chomsky, world renowned physician, author and activist Helen Caldicott, M.D., and founder of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation David Krieger come together through interwoven interviews to create a narrative that addresses one of the most urgent needs of our planet: the modern dangers of nuclear weapons and the threat of nuclear terrorism in the world today. The World Awaits depicts the effects of nuclear weapons and the urgent need for nuclear states to reduce and eventually eliminate these highly destructive weapons of mass destruction. The narrative presents the dangers of these weapons, including recent close calls and almost-attacks over the 70 years since the first use of nuclear weapons in August, 1945. The film also explores the current threat of nuclear terrorism and the dangers of nuclear power plants in today’s world. The three core interviews are interwoven with archival footage of presidents Barack Obama, John Kennedy, Dwight Eisenhower and Harry Truman. The World Awaits makes a strong argument for never using these weapons again and how these outdated arms and power sources should be abolished in the best interests of the survival of humanity and our planet. Speakers from Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility and Veterans for Peace will be joining us for discussion after the film.

Please join us for the film’s showing. It’s FREE and open to the public! Donations to defray the cost of screening rights gladly accepted. Doors open at 6:30 P.M. The film begins at 7:00 P.M with a facilitated community discussion to follow.

…to make the difference for one child in your school?
Every year in our community, hundreds of kids enter the foster care system. The critical shortage of foster care homes in our school district means that abused and neglected children are rarely able to stay in their original school when they enter foster care. As a result, children who must enter foster care lose not only their families, but also friends, teachers, tutors, counselors, administrators, bus drivers, food service workers and custodians.
For many of these kids, school is the only secure piece of their lives. You could be the best solution!
We are searching for a few families from your school to become licensed foster parents. Just in case a child in your school needs a home. You don’t have to be a superhero, or even save the world, but just maybe you could find the room to make the difference in the life of one child.
Attend orientation now! Get licensed and be ready to help when a student in our community needs a foster family. For information, please call 1-888-KIDS414 (1-888-543-7414).
