Public Screening and Discussion: Save the Farm

Culture Consumers invites the community to take part in this public screening of “Save the Farm”. The short documentary depicts the struggle to maintain the country’s largest urban community garden in South Central Los Angeles. This is a condensed version of the Oscar-nominated film “The Garden”.

Footage of local community gardens will also be highlighted via Green Spaces Alliance. Speakers will also be on hand to take questions and provide more information to the public. Guests will include members of Roots for Change Community Garden, Green Spaces Alliance and Evergreen Garden.

This public forum is intended to stimulate a platica among the community members and the organizers of various community gardens in our area to provide the needed information for individuals interested in learning more about gardening, sustainability and the future of food.

Guilty Pleasures Series: Chocolate and Television

Mindless consumption is harmful to our health, from too much unfiltered reality to too much processed candy. Join Media Justice League (MJL) for our pre-Valentine’s “Guilty Pleasures” series with widely published and nationally recognized media critic Jennifer Pozner. Pozner will help you unpack gender, race and class biases in the media, from your favorite reality TV shows to news stories about your community. 

  • February 9, C4 Workspace: “Media Literacy, Media Outreach: Unpacking and Changing Stories About Our Lives.” This two-part, hands-on workshop will help participants learn to identify, deconstruct and challenge gender, race and class biases in news and entertainment media. A media training session will help you learn how to work with journalists to improve media coverage of the issues and people you care about. (limited to 50 participants)
  • February 10, Twig Bookstore: “Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth About Guilty Pleasure TV.” In this lively multimedia presentation and interactive Q&A, Pozner will discuss sexism, racism and commercial biases in reality television. A book signing to follow.

Enjoy a variety of delicious chocolates at both events just in time for Valentine’s Day. Whether it’s decadent treats or sketchy reality TV, these events will help you consume what you enjoy healthfully.


Jennifer L. Pozner is founder and executive director of Women In Media & News (WIMN), a media analysis, education and advocacy group. She is also managing editor of WIMN’s Voices, the popular group blog on women and the media. Her book, Reality Bites Back: The Troubling Truth About Guilty Pleasure TV (Seal Press, Nov. 1, 2010), grew out of WIMN’s media analysis program.
