forestwhitakeroscar2007When I grow up I think I’d like to be Forest Whitaker. Half-actor, half-activist — Whitaker is not only a powerhouse actor, but a powerhouse humanitarian.

To continue his good work, Forest will host a special screening of Kassim The Dream, a multiple award-winning documentary based on the journey of a Ugandan child from child soldier to world champion boxer.

The screening will be held on January 29th and help benefit Hope North – a refuge for orphans and escaped child soldiers in northern Uganda that provides schooling and training to rebuild their lives.

Tickets to the event are a mere $25 and include VIP seating at ArcLight Cinemas in Los Angeles, and a cocktail reception and question and answer period afterwards.

So find out more, visit the Hope North website!

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
