On Wednesday, May 3, CEC and the Burlingame High School (BHS) Parents Group will present a free screening of “Before the Flood,” which features Leonardo DiCaprio on an international journey as a United Nations “Messenger of Peace,” sounding the alarm about the growing climate crisis. He joins scientists on expeditions uncovering the reality of climate change, meets with political leaders fighting against inaction and discovers a disinformation campaign aimed at confusing the public. You can watch a trailer here.

This program is free. It will take place at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at Burlingame High School.
We’ll also show BHS student Jeffery Chen’s video, “The Plastic Bottle Controversy Explained,” which recently was the Overall Festival Winner at the Clear the Air Filmfest. In addition, we’ll hear from Phil Gregory of Burlingame law firm Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy about a landmark lawsuit by 21 young people who are suing the U.S. government to take action on climate change. It is expected to go to court later this year.
