Door County UUF Screens “Fixing the Future”

Fixing the Future, a PBS documentary of hopeful people taking positive actions to pull together in the wake of 2008’s financial meltdown, will be screened Nov. 15 at 4:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Ephraim.

From Maine to Washington State, this film features stories of regular Americans reinventing their way out of the Great Recession, including leaders of banking cooperatives, entrepreneurs, and activists committed to buying and hiring locally. Nobel Prize winners and economists also offer reflections on this new era’s challenges.

Viewers may be inspired by the stories of people reinventing their economies in ways that actually benefit whole communities. Stephen Beckett comments, “Community is more like something that we are remembering, than something we are creating all over again.”

All are welcome to attend this event, which will be followed by a discussion.

“Movies That Matter” tackles topics of substance the third Tuesday of every month at 4:30 pm. The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Highway 42, Ephraim. For more information visit or call 920.854.7559.
