This week's calls to action include the following events and activities. (All are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.)

Artists for fracking ban

The Flying Squirrel Community Space hosts a showing of the documentary film "Dear Governor Cuomo" at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 15. Filmmaker Jon Bowermaster captures a unique collaboration of musicians, artists, scientists, and activists as they come together in Albany one evening to press Cuomo to keep the ban on fracking. The film will be shown at 285 Clarissa Street.

ROC Rochester nonprofits

ROC the Day is a 24-hour online event allowing all residents of the Greater Rochester nine-county region to give to the nonprofit of their choice. All of the money donated on Wednesday, December 12, will help local people and nonprofit organizations. Many of the area's nonprofits are holding events and demonstrations, too. For example, Rochester Greenovations, 1199 East Main Street, will have music and entertainment from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. They will also display their Tiny House Project. For information on activities and how to give:
