The Reluctant Radical

Join 350.org Washington County for a fascinating film with Oregon roots and global impact. We hope for a great turnout and conversation just like our June film event. Bring your friends and family and let’s talk! Free film and free popcorn!

If a crime is committed in order to prevent a greater crime, is it forgivable? Is it, in fact, necessary? THE RELUCTANT RADICAL follows Oregon activist Ken Ward as he confronts his fears and puts himself in the direct path of the fossil fuel industry to combat climate change. The film reveals both the personal costs and also the fulfillment that comes from following one’s moral calling- even if that means breaking the law. The film follows Ken through a series of direct actions, culminating with an action that shuts down all the U.S. tar sands oil pipelines and threatens to put him behind bars for 20 years.
