Roy Zimmerman Concert – Potluck- Fundraiser for Peace Camp Houston

April 1, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Bering Memorial United Methodist Church, 1440 Harold
Houston, TX 77006 United States

What can one person do about climate change, torture, racism, xenophobia, gun violence, fracking, Congressional ineptitude, ignorance, war and greed? Write funny songs, says Roy Zimmerman, master satirist, songwriter, and performer.

HPJC is bringing Roy Zimmerman back to Houston in a benefit to raise funds for Peace Camp Houston. In 14 albums over 20 years, Roy has brought the sting of satire and parody to the struggle for peace and social justice.

He makes fun of right wing politicians, hypocrites, war profiteers, large multinational corporations, religious bigots, and hate-mongers, while entertaining you with stories and music.

Earth Day Barter Fair

April 22, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Live Oak Friends Meeting House, 1318 W. 26th
Houston, TX 77008 United States
Free

A Barter Fair provides an opportunity to trade objects and services without using common currency. The Quaker testimonies of Simplicity, Community and Stewardship encourage Friends to find creative ways to care for the earth and each other, and we want to extend this opportunity to others in the community. Creating a space to practice thinking together in a new way about how we place value on objects and services within our community seems like a worthwhile way to observe the 48th anniversary of Earth Day.

To get involved, just come! Bring a table, shelf, rug or blanket to display your goods or a sign that describes your service(s). CHILDREN ARE WELCOME! Children are often the best models of how this can work. They have the ability to add value to an item by describing potential uses, and the creativity to negotiate three-way trades.

Meet filmmaker Regis Tremblay 11:59:30-Thirty Seconds to Midnight

May 25, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Donations accepted

Reception with Regis Tremblay

My new documentary, Thirty Seconds to Midnight, is ready and we will show it in Houston, TX

This has been a very long, three year project that began with my first feature documentary, The Ghosts of Jeju. It was then that I realized the U.S. plan for full spectrum dominance of the planet. My research and interest since then has focused on the trajectory of Manifest Destiny since the white, European explorers came to the Americas in the 15th Century.

And so it is, America’s destiny has all life on the planet on the very brink of extinction. As Dr. Caldicott wonders at the end of the film, “Are we an evolutionary aberration designed in an evolutionary sense not to survive? I wonder.”

From Black Lives Matter to Standing Rock to the resistance against the Trump regime, thousands of people across the country have faced arrest and prosecution in recent years for their political actions and activity.

Our society revolves around consumption. Personal consumption of durable goods add up to 8% of GDP, and non-durable goods add up to 15%, totaling about $4 trillion dollars annually in the USA! The more we buy, the more we throw away, often during the first year! And... most people no longer know how to repair things.
