Cinema Politica Film Screening
March 13, 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Dive! follows filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and friends as they “dumpster dive” in the back alleys and garbage receptacles of Los Angeles' supermarkets. They salvage thousands of dollars worth of good, edible food.  A documentary that is equal parts entertainment, guerilla journalism and call to action.

Ice Riders Half Pints Bike Relay/Grass Routes Wrap Up Party
Eco Eklectica Soirée
Friday, March 16, 9:00 pm - 2:00 am
The Pyramid Cabaret
Tickets are only $10 and are available at the UWSA Info Booth.

EcoPIA’s annual event raises money to support the Eco Grant, which awards students who are trying to find solutions to climate change at the local level. 
It’s also a great party!
