On Friday, April 26, CDP partnered with psychologist and documentary filmmaker Jan Haaken to host a screening of her film Necessity: Oil, Water, and Climate Resistance, in which CDP attorneys are interviewed. Held at the OK Stereo Loft in Oakland, the event featured a panel discussion with Haaken, CDP co-founder and attorney Alice Cherry, and Isabella Zizi, a climate activist and signatory on the Indigenous Women of the America’s Defending Mother Earth treaty. Proceeds from the event supported CDP and completion of the film. You can watch a video of the panel discussion here.
Those interested in tracking the progress of the film, including future screenings and distribution, can follow the film on FB, and are also encouraged to sign up on the Necessity website for updates.
