Urban Action 12/18 

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

Green gathering

Rochester's environmentalist community will hold "Green Drinks" at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, December 18, at Tap and Mallet, 381 Gregory Street. Green Drinks is a networking event for people in the environmental and sustainable energy fields to meet, exchange ideas, and learn about upcoming events. There will be a cash bar and organizers are asking that attendees bring an unwrapped new toy for the Pirate Toy Fund.

Labor film

The Rochester Labor Films will present "Boxcar Bertha" at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, December 18. The Martin Scorsese film depicts a Depression-era female-led crime spree. The film follows hobo Bertha and union leader Big Bill Shelly who wage a battle against the railroad's anti-labor management. The film, which is Scorsese's second, examines class, race, and gender in the 1930's. It will be shown in the George Eastman House's Dryden Theater, 900 East Avenue. Dryden ticket prices apply.

Public comment is open until 5 p.m. on Friday, December 20, at Click the "Have Your Say" link at the top. The results from the focus groups are on the website, too.
