Stories of Survival / Historias de Supervivencia – Houston

August 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Free

Join us in Houston for the first stop of Stories of Survival Tour. From the the Gulf South to Puerto Rico Stories of Survival will bring community together to learn, deepen connections, and share stories about community-centered solutions and strategies for survival in the face of climate change. Coinciding with observances of the devastating disasters during hurricane season that continually impact our home places, the tour will include FREE solar-powered “Cine Solar” film screenings, community dinners, storytelling, collective visioning, and other unique artistic and cultural offerings.

Stories of Survival is being hosted by a collaborative of grassroots groups, organizers, media-makers, artists and activists acting at the frontlines of climate, including Another Gulf Is Possible Collaborative, Bridge The Gulf, Defend Puerto Rico, Sierra Club, Texas Housers, West Street Recovery, and Working Films, among others.

Stories of Survival will close out the Hurricane Harvey Peoples Tribunal, a two day event on August 24th and 25th, in which residents, community leaders, and experts will testify and imagine creative solutions that could move Houston toward becoming more resilient to future climate disasters.
