[Call to Action] Even if you are unable to attend, please still consider making a donation through June 6th, 2012 (the date we graduate).

Whatever you can give will be appreciated, and everything helps. Thank you for your support!
FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.

About the Jeremiah Fellowship and Bend The Arc: A Partnership for Justice (formerly, PJA & JFSJ)
Bend The Arc engages American Jews in support of the common good through pooled investments, leadership training and development, grassroots organizing, direct service, community partnerships, grant-making, advocacy and innovative grassroots and communications campaigns. We collaborate with the many people and organizations of diverse faiths that share our goals. We believe that the common good is best served when everyone has true economic opportunity and basic inalienable rights a safe place to live, a job that lets them provide for their families and hold their heads high, an accessible ladder of opportunity, and freedom from fear, hate and want. By acting on our values and our experiences we believe that the Jewish community can and must help hold America to its promise.
The Jeremiah Fellowship connects young adults to the city in which they live, to the issues facing their community, and helps Fellows become effective and informed progressive community leaders and activists.
The Jeremiah Fellowship expands the leadership vision of participants, deepens their Jewish social justice values, and provides them with a progressive Jewish context and community for their activism.
