Please join us for the November film screening of "Solar Mamas" by Mona Eldaief and Jehane Noujaim. Rafea (a 30-year-old Jordanian mother of four) is traveling outside of her village for the first time to attend a solar engineering program at India's Barefoot College. She will join poor women like herself from Guatemala, Kenya, Burkina Faso, and Columbia to learn concrete skills to change their communities. A panel discussion, following the film, will be led by panelists: Luther C. Davis, Coordinator of Industrial Trades, NCCER Master Trainer/AWS-CWE, Delgado Community College, Technical Division; and Jewel Bush, SEIU Local 21 LA's Communications Coordinator. For more information, call Drena S. Clay at (504) 569-9070.
