Saturday Movies Nov. 3

Our First Saturday Movies Series at 1 pm. Free and open to all. Coco is a 2017 American 3D animated fantasy film produced by Pixar Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The concept for Coco is inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead holiday. The film was praised for its animation, voice acting, music, emotional story, and respect for Mexican culture. The film won two Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song. For Latinos, “Coco” is not just a visually resplendent animated film with a poignant story about the importance of family. It’s also a rallying cry. “I am certain that Disney/Pixar did not set out to make this a political film, but that is exactly what they have done,” said Benjamin Bratt, “‘Coco’ inspires love around the world, and for Latinos in particular.”  

2nd Chance: Amendment 4    YES

2nd Chance: Amendment 4 YES

Amendment #4 Restoring the Right to Vote for ex-felons is one of 12 Amendments to be voted on the November 6 ballot. (#8 was removed) Two are from Citizen Initiatives, three from the State legislature and seven from the Constitutional Revision Committee. The CRC Amendments are confusing because three distinct situations might be in the same Amendment, sometimes cancelling each other. At least we know that Amendment 4 is a solid YES supported by many organizations and churches and others.
