Thursday, April 22, 2021: Virtual film screening of “Earth Water Woman”

Date: April 22, 2021

Time: 7:00 pm - 8:30 am

Join us for a virtual film screening of “Earth Water Woman” followed by a panel discussion and celebration of congregations’ stewardship efforts. “Earth Water Woman” is a film that spotlights a community reforestation project in Trinidad and Tobago and its charismatic leader, Akilah Jaramogi. A micro-solution for the macro problem of climate change, this documentary urges viewers everywhere to examine their relationship to their watershed.

This event is part of a larger movement of “Creation care” in Queen Anne’s County, in which members of the faith community increase land and water stewardship through a program called Stewards for Streams. Funded by Chesapeake Bay Trust, Stewards for Streams is a partnership between ShoreRivers, a nonprofit that protects and restores Eastern Shore waterways, and Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake, a nonprofit that has engaged over 300 congregations across Maryland in caring for their local watersheds.
