The Mt. Baker Meaningful Movies Venue will be hosting an online Meaningful Movies event for Cooked: Survival by Zipcode which looks at structural racism and the ways that it leads to inequitable disaster preparedness and response. The movie starts with a look at a drastic Chicago summer heat wave. This film raises important questions about how to prepare for any disaster. As we know, vulnerable people are disproportionately suffering from the economic impacts of the coronavirus so the themes of this movie are especially relevant at this time. Speaker TBD. See below for zoom log in information and for a tentative agenda.
7:00 - 7:10 Speaker
7:10 - 7:20 Q and A and action items
7:20 - 7:30 Small Group Discussions (Yes, this will happen via Zoom!)
7:30 - 7:40 Report back and closure
Attendees are asked to view the film prior to the beginning of the event. Contact event organizers for online access to the film.

MORE ABOUT THE MEANINGFUL MOVIES PROJECT
The Meaningful Movies Project is a non-profit organization that assists neighborhoods, groups and individuals organize, educate and advocate using the power of social justice documentary film. Screenings are followed by conversations that have the power to build positive and meaningful community. We at Meaningful Movies are here to support Meaningful Movies groups. And now, with COVID-19 and social distancing, we are digitally supporting our groups, as well as creating opportunities for filmmakers to show their films at virtual screenings. We are currently educating our volunteers about this new and exciting opportunity, as well as reaching out to filmmakers. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a film you'd like to suggest to our groups that could be showed online.
