Subject: Environmental Defense Fund Film Screening

Good Afternoon,

I hope you had a pleasant Homecoming weekend. My name is Dominic Detwiler, and I am the Campus Organizer for Defend Our Future, the non-partisan organizing project of the Environmental Defense Fund. I am currently a sophomore studying Sociology here at Ohio University in the Honors Tutorial College. Our goal is to engage students in the political process around climate change and other environmental issues.

I wanted to let you know about an upcoming event film screening that will be presented by Defend Our Future on October 24th at 7:00pm. We ask you to please share the attached flyer with your students in any way that you think is appropriate. We believe that the students in your class would greatly benefit from attending this event by seeing real-world examples of individuals and communities working together to conserve the land and oceans that we depend on for food. Students will also be invited to participate in a group discussion after the event that will include actions we can tae here in Athens to protect the environment and fight climate change.

'Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman' is the film adaptation of the book of the same name by Miriam Horn, an author for the Environmental Defense Fund that follows the stories of bipartisan efforts by folks in the agricultural communities to conserve the American heartland. Unfolding as a journey down the Mississippi River, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman tells the stories of five representatives of this stewardship movement: a Montana rancher, a Kansas farmer, a Mississippi riverman, a Louisiana shrimper and a Gulf fisherman. In exploring their work, family histories and the essential geographies they protect, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman challenges pervasive and powerful myths about American and environmental values.

Thank you so much for your time and for sharing this information with your students and departments. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at any time.
