You heard about our new mission.

Now see our plans in action.

In April 2019, we announced our new mission to mobilize people, ideas and investments to make this a community where all individuals have equitable opportunity to reach their full potential—no matter race, place or identity.

You’re invited to join us on Wednesday, Oct. 28, for an update on our commitment to dismantling systemic racism, hear from leaders who are joining us in this work, and learn more about how you can be a part of our plan of action for a more equitable community.

To ensure safety through social distancing and to be accessible to all, this event will be broadcast live from the Madam Walker Legacy Center and shared on an interactive digital platform.
Details on how to connect to the digital event will be shared with registered guest.

We can’t wait to see you at our annual fall fundraiser this year: a film screening of “2040” and an intimate discussion with Indiana experts! Join us on October 22nd to see director Damon Gameau’s ‘exercise in fact-based dreaming’, 2040.

The film takes a solutions-based approach to how we can, using the technology we already have, mitigate the enormous global issues we currently face. The main themes/solutions looked at in the film are around: empowerment of women and girls; marine regeneration; regenerative agriculture; renewable energy; and circular economy. It’s a story of hope, and a powerful tool to encourage people to take action.
We will also be hosting a pre-film introduction that includes a HIPL produced short film and music, and our post-movie regroup to discuss local climate solutions.

So plan to join in from the comfort of your home to enjoy this widely acclaimed and powerful family friendly film, and the before and after programs!

Registration for the film screening is FREE. Please consider donating $15 to cover the costs of the film and any additional contribution you can give. Gifts from our supporters enable us to continue our mission throughout the year.

So register today and plan a family night at the movies!

Just Transition NWI invites you to a virtual documentary screening of In the Water, a film by Beth Edwards of the Indiana Environmental Reporter about the issue of coal ash pollution in Indiana. The film spotlights the Town of Pines in Northwest Indiana (NWI), whose drinking water and soil were poisoned by coal ash due to negligence on the part of the local utility, NIPSCO. This screening is especially timely due to the threat of NIPSCO proposing to dig up and haul thousands of cubic yards of coal ash from their Michigan City and Bailly plants through NWI communities.

The film screening will lead into a Q&A and community discussion with the following panelists:

– Beth Edwards, Director of In the Water and writer and producer for the Indiana Environmental Reporter

– Cathi Murray, Resident of Town of Pines and founding member of P.I.N.E.S (People in Need of Environmental Safety)

– Lisa Evans, Senior Counsel with Earthjustice

– Michael Mack, Vice President of the Michigan City Council, Ward 3 Councilman and Council Liaison with the Michigan City Sustainability Commission

– Dr. Indra Frank, Environmental Health and Water Policy Director with the Hoosier Environmental Council

The public will have the opportunity to submit their questions to the panel. This film screening is free to the public and is not rated, but should be suitable for older children.

Thu, Sep 10, 2020 11:45 AM - Thu, Sep 10, 2020 2:30 PM @ Eli Lilly and Company Global Headquarters Lilly Corporate Center

Unlike its competitors Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, and J&J, Eli Lilly has refused to ban the cruel and useless “forced swim test” on animals. Please join PETA and local activists to urge the company to make the compassionate decision! We will be having a demo outside Eli Lilly’s Headquarters in Indianapolis followed by chalking the neighborhood of the CEO of Eli Lilly, David Ricks.

The so-called “forced swim test” is a widely discredited experiment that’s as cruel as it is worthless. In this test, experimenters put mice, rats, guinea pigs, hamsters, or gerbils in inescapable containers filled with water. The panicked animals try to escape by attempting to climb up the sides of the beakers or even diving underwater in search of an exit. They paddle furiously, desperately trying to keep their heads above water. Eventually, they’ll start to float. Initially, experimenters believed that the test could be used to screen new drugs for human depression, but the data show that it’s no more accurate than a coin toss.

Please learn more about this cruel experiment and take action here: https://support.peta.org/page/7704/action/1?locale=en-US

WHEN: Thursday, September 10

11:45-1:00pm Eli Lilly’s Headquarters
2:00-2:30 CEO David Ricks’ house

WHERE: (See facebook event for more event details)

CONTACT: Jonathan Horn

Note: We will be taking precautions to ensure safe social distancing during this action. All activists are asked to maintain a distance of 6 ft. from each other and wear a protective face mask.

Chalk and posters will be provided. Outreach events are a fun and effective way to help animals as well as meet local advocates, so before you go, check out PETA’s outreach tips [http://www.mediapeta.com/peta/PDF/tips_for_PETA_activists.pdf] and be sure to invite others.

Please dress sharp, as it helps our message come across much stronger! Please be prepared for the weather.
