Join Sierra Club Sonoma Group, the Farmers Guild and Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF) in a free screening of “Water & Power: A California Heist,” an acclaimed documentary about the hijaking of California’s surface and groundwater by powerful corporations and wealthy individuals.

This film, created by National Geographic, first screened at Sundance this year, and is an important investigation into the many players involved in water rights in the Central Valley and beyond.

Its message is especially critical with the recent formations of Groundwater Sustainability Agencies throughout the county and the state, and as our attention is drawn to this precious resource that is now being treated as a commodity rather than a resource provided with equal access to the residents of the state.

Potluck starts at 6 p.m.

Movie starts at 7 p.m.

A discussion on local water issues will immediately follow the screening (8:20 approximately).

Donations gladly accepted ($5-10 per person suggested).
