We hope you can join the Sierra Club for our annual Chapter Retreat. As one of the largest and most influential environmental organizations in the state, this is the time each year where we celebrate our victories, renew our spirits, and make our plans the year ahead. All are welcome, and meals will be provided for members who register.
In June 2014, Governor Kasich signed into law a bill that guts Ohio’s clean energy and efficiency standards. Passing this new law was not enough for Ohio’s utilities, though.
Now, Ohio’s largest electric utilities, AEP, Duke, and FirstEnergy are seeking to keep a number of Ohio’s oldest and dirtiest power plants open for years to come.
And they want you and me to pay for it.
King Corn and Big River Double-Feature on March 22
March 19th, 2010
Do you know where your food comes from, or the environmental impacts of putting that food on the table?
Join Sierra Club, Aveda Institute Columbus, Local Matters, and Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association at Studio 35 in Columbus for a movie screening of King Corn, paired with the follow-up film Big River.
King Corn tells the tale of two college friends who grow corn together in Iowa, revealing the impacts of industrial agriculture on our health and environment. Following up on King Corn is Big River, where we will find out how their field of corn directly impacts water quality and the communities living downstream.
Come out and help us celebrate World Water Day, while we also kick off Earth Month with Aveda Institute Columbus. Prior to the film, learn how Sierra Club, Aveda Institute, Local Matters and OEFFA are working to protect water quality and create more sustainable communities.
When: Monday, March 22 — doors open 6pm, speakers begin at 6:30, and film begins at 7pm.
Where: Studio 35, 3055 Indianola Ave. in Columbus, OH
Tickets: Admission is $7.50 and a portion of the proceeds will go to Sierra Club’s Central Ohio Clean Water Campaign
