Healthy Communities Film: "With My Own Two Wheels"

Healthy Communities Film: "With My Own Two Wheels"

Monday, April 7, 2014 - 7:00 pm

Can a simple 19th century technology change the world? For most North Americans, a bicycle ride or commute is a lifestyle choice. For countless others across the globe, each pedal stroke is progress out of poverty, toward an education and over the mountains of social and cultural discrimination.

"With My Own Two Wheels" profiles the lives of five people and portrays the powerful difference a bicycle has made for each of them and their communities. The film can be used to better understand their life circumstances, the power of an "appropriate" human-scale technology in an increasingly hi-tech world and to inspire discussion on how we can each contribute to improving the lives of people around the world, even in simple ways.

CME Lecture: Lela Lee

CME Lecture: Lela Lee

Monday, April 7, 2014 - 7:00 pm

Cartoonist Lela Lee will be presenting and discussing her cartoon “Angry Little Asian Girl,” and her books Angry Little Girls.  Characters experience and express anger in various ways. The strips are often both humorous and thought-provoking. Come listen to how Lela Lee overcame the odds, as many told her “there is just no market for Asians” and her characters. She not only beat this insulting stereotype, but has published several books, comics, and has her own website. This is the 20th anniversary of Angry Little Asian Girls.
