We're encouraging folks to host their local Do The Math screenings on April 21, on the eve of Earth Day (“Earth Night”), at 7 p.m. local time. We're hoping folks can wrap up their screenings in time to tune into one of two live-stream discussions, which are happening at 8 p.m. ET and 8 p.m. PT.
Like everything we do at 350.org, we need people power to make this work.

You don't need to go far to see the movie, since there's at least one screening near you.
