Vice President Al Gore comes to CHF to deliver a call to action and to expose, with alarming clarity and conclusiveness, that global climate change is a fact left unchecked, and its consequences for the world we live in will be disastrous. In An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, the follow-up documentary and book to his groundbreaking An Inconvenient Truth, Gore explores the reality of how humankind is aiding in the destruction of our planet. He also tells a story of change in the making and offers real, actionable steps that each of us can take to help reverse the damage. Marilynn Thoma Artistic Director Alison Cuddy joins the Vice President for a program essential for anyone concerned with the future of our world.
