alt From the heart of Australia comes this comprehensive and controversial documentary that focuses on one of the world's most recognizable icons, the kangaroo. This groundbreaking film reveals the truth surrounding Australia's love-hate relationship with its beloved icon.
The kangaroo "image" is proudly used by top companies, sports teams and tourist souvenirs, yet as they hop across the vast continent, many consider them pests to be shot and sold for profit. KANGAROO unpacks a national paradigm where the relationship with kangaroos is examined.

alt First we rallied, now we mobilize!

Please join Oregon Recovers for an afternoon of advocacy, discussion and training as we plan to pass our first piece of legislation in the Oregon Legislature in an effort to make Oregon the "Recovery State".

For the first hour we will watch the award-winning film "The Anonymous People" which makes a powerful case for people in recovery to get off the sidelines and advocate at every level of government for people suffering from the disease of addiction.

We'll then have a moderated discussion about advocacy and recovery.
Lastly, we'll review the content of Rep. Tawna Sanchez's upcoming "Addiction Recovery Strategic Plan" legislation, register people for Oregon Recovers Lobby Day in Salem on Tuesday, February 13th and conclude with a training on how to lobby.

FREE OF CHARGE but, due to limited seating, reservations are required. Attending does not mean you need to commit to Lobby Day!
