From the Academy Award Winning Filmmakers of The Cove…
This is the most important film you will see this year!
Scientists say the sixth mass extinction is taking place on our planet.
It’s also the first caused by a single species: Us.
Mass animal extinction. Global climate change. Illegal wildlife traffic. The problems are overwhelming. The scale enormous.
But the solutions can start with you. It starts with one thing. One thing that changes the way you live, eat, act, drive, work. One thing that changes your everyday. One thing that changes your corner of the world. One thing that leads to another and another and another. Learn here what you can do and then share your one thing. A movement can be born when hope is ignited. #StartWith1Thing.
This free screening of Racing Extinction is a pre-conference event, in advance of the Friday, April 22, 8:30am – 5pm
Golden West College 10th Annual Peace Conference.

About Racing Extinction
Scientists predict we may lose half the species on the planet by the end of the century. They believe we have entered the sixth major extinction event in Earth’s history. Number five took out the dinosaurs. This era is called the Anthropocene, or ‘Age of Man’, because the evidence shows that humanity has sparked this catastrophic loss. We are the only ones who can stop it as well.
An unlikely team of activists is out to expose the two worlds endangering species across the globe. The first threat to the wild comes from the international trade of wildlife. Bogus markets are being created at the expense of creatures who have survived on this planet for millions of years. The other threat is all around us, hiding in plain sight. There’s a hidden world that the oil and gas companies don’t want the rest of us to see. Director Louie Psihoyos has concocted an ambitious mission to call attention to our impact on the planet, while inspiring others to embrace the solutions that will ensure a thriving planet for future generations.
