Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret

The Masonic Family Center Grand Junction, 2400 Consistory Ct., Grand Junction
Doors open at 4:00, screening at 4:30 for the Grand Junction screening of COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret - the groundbreaking environmental film that environmental organizations don't want you to see. Follow an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today, and investigates why the world's leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. This is a documentary as eye-opening as "Blackfish" and as inspiring as "An Inconvenient Truth" and it's bound to be the talk of the town, so come see it before all your friends do, better yet, bring all your friends, and anyone who is interested in keeping our planet inhabitable!

An in-depth Q & A with the filmmakers will follow the screening.

No charge, Donations accepted.
