West Seattle Meaningful Movies presents ‘A Concerned Citizen’ @ Neighborhood House High Point
May 4 @ 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

A Concerned Citizen

“Provides the viewer with both a history of how we got into this environmental mess as well as a roadmap for how to move forward. . . . Highly recommended!” –Anne Miller, South Seattle Climate Action Network

This film documents the work of Dr. Riki Ott, a whistleblower who predicted the Exxon Valdez oil spill hours before it happened and came to the aid of her Alaskan community in their battle to get compensation for their loss of health and income.
Recognizing the power of money in politics, she advocated for a constitutional amendment to end corporate personhood and reform campaign finance laws.

Taking the lessons she learned as an activist, she is now spearheading “Ultimate Civics,” a complete civics curriculum that empowers students to participate in their democracy.

“It is my hope that as people’s health, livelihoods, and property are harmed by these extreme oil activities, people will understand the need to shift off oil to safer energy options and take action to achieve true energy independence. This is the movement that I see growing in all regions of our country.” —Dr. Riki Ott
