TUESDAY, JUNE 22, 2021 AT 7:30 PM EDT – 8:30 PM EDT
Against a backdrop of the many problems facing the world, many wonder, “What can I do to make a difference?”
Sixty years ago, Marion Stoddart, a young mother of three, took on big business, politicians, and public skepticism, and — in the process –discovered her life purpose and helped change the world.
“You don’t need to be someone special or super bright or super anything. You can just be an ordinary person who first has a vision of what you would like to have happen who then commits to that vision.”
Join CounterAct Climate Change (C3) on Tuesday, June 22nd at 7:30 p.m. EST for a Zoom screening of The Work of 1000 — a 30-minute documentary film about Marion Stoddart’s successful efforts to restore the Nashua River: once one of the 10 most polluted rivers in the United States.
Following the film, students from the Reclaiming Sunshine Club at Sizer School will interview Marion to learn more about her experience creating change.
Later in June, the Environmental Stewards of NewVue Communities will host a walk at Riverfront Park in Fitchburg where you can view a riverfront mural featuring Marion and learn more about the many human and planetary benefits of this urban park.
