Thursday, Dec. 8, 7:00 PM

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists Hall
1924 Cedar (@Bonita), Berkeley www.bfuu.org

Through interviews with media luminaries, cognitive linguists, grassroots activist groups such as: Noam Chomsky, Steve Rendall, Jeff Cohen, Eric Boehlert, George Lakoff, STOP RUSH, Hear Yourself Think, Claire Conner, and others, Jen Senkos Brainwashing unravels the plan to shift the country to the right over the last 30 years, largely through media manipulation. The result has led to fewer voices, less diversity of opinion, massive intentional misinformation, and greater division of our country. For more info: http://www.thebrainwashingofmydad.com/trailer

12/08/2016 San Francisco Progressive Democrats of America (PDA-SF)
presents a special Human Rights Day program:

The TPP is out (for the moment, anyway) and Trump is in. How can we protect our planet, civil liberties and human rights?

After years of organizing and lobbying by thousands of citizen activists, the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) has been blocked during the current legislative session. But now Donald Trump is about to become President, and those who worked to defeat the TPP are concerned that it may be revived, in a different form, under the new administration. Equally worrisome are the policies and initiatives likely to emerge from Trumps presidency that may threaten the environment, civil liberties, and even our right to protest.

This program takes place just before December 10, the day when we commemorate the United Nations 1948 adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Inspired by this theme, three leading Bay Area activist-scholars will address how we can protect our planet, civil liberties and human rights over the coming four years and into the future.

Panelists:
Douglas Norlen: Senior Program Manager, Economic Policy Program, Friends of the Earth
Shahid Buttar: Director of Grassroots Advocacy, Electronic Frontier Foundation
Aaron Lehmer-Chang: California Director, Citizens Trade Campaign

Getting There:

Parking can be very difficult near the Omni, but it is an easy jaunt from MacArthur BART station.



ACCESSIBILITY:

The Entrance Hall, Sudo Room and Counter Culture Labs are all wheelchair-accessible on the ground floor. The ballroom is accessible via a wheelchair lift in the entry hall . The doorway to the Ticket Booth Room (this room is where one sells tickets not where public buys tickets) has been widened to enable wheelchair access.
Unfortunately, we do not currently have an ADA-accessible bathroom. The bathroom connected to the Entrance Hall is currently being renovated to become a single-occupancy ADA bathroom, but we have some work to do until it's complete. Note that this bathroom connected to the Entry Hall is easily usable by persons in wheelchairs. The bathroom in the hallway leading to Sudo Room and Counter Culture Labs is single-occupancy and can be utilized by those with some limited mobility.
Long-term plans include an elevator lift to the basement and upstairs areas

DR. DAVID GRINSPOON  Astrobiologist, Senior Scientist at the Planetary Science Institute & Author of Earth in Human Hands: Shaping Our Planets Future

Lucie Stern Theatre
1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto

Price:
General: $12 Members; $22 Non-Members;
Premium: $40 Members; $50 Non-Members
Students: $8 (with valid ID)

For the first time in Earths history, our planet is experiencing rapidly accelerating changes prompted by one species: humans. Climate change is the most visible and our current behavior threatens not only our own future but that of countless other creatures.

As we stand at this pivotal juncture, Dr. Grinspoon calls upon all of us to be planetary engineers, conscious shapers of our environment, and caretakers of the Earths biosphere.

With our future at stake Dr. Grinspoon shares his 10,000 year perspective by not only asking what kind of future we want to avoid, but what do we ultimately seek to build?
