Social Justice Film Series
Join us on Friday, August 17 at 6:30 PM for a showing of the film, Pom Poko (1994 PG), which tells of the secret world of tanuki (mythical Japanese trickster raccoons). The tanuki’s habitat has faced serious deforestation while they were too busy infighting.

Popcorn provided.
