As we gear up for Earth Day and massive increases to the Pentagon budget. Cleveland Peace Action Education Fund and the Northeast Ohio Sierra Club join together to show three short films that address the enormous, negative impact of war, military testing and manufacturing on the environment.
Find out what's happening, how it impacts you and what we can do to turn the tide. Discussion after each film.

"Ecosystems, War and Climate Change"
