Join us Thursday, July 11 at 7pm at the Parks Project Discovery Center for a captivating event that will shed new light on California-icon Betty Reid Soskin.


This event, co-sponsored by the Parks Project and Intersectional Environmentalist will showcase an exciting 24-minute sneak peek screening of the forthcoming documentary Sign My Name to Freedom, a feature-length film about 102-year-old Betty Reid Soskin, her lost music, and her family's experiences confronting Jim Crow style workplace and residential housing segregation in the Bay Area.


In addition to previewing the film, audience members will have a chance to participate in a Q&A with film Director Bryan Gibel and Betty’s granddaughter Alyana Reid. Leah Thomas, founder of Intersectional Environmentalist, and Co-Founder Diandra Marizet, will also be featured at this extraordinary event. They will discuss their work and show Intersections, a film with Betty and Leah from 2022 shot by Bryan. 


Sign My Name to Freedom is currently working to raise $50,000 by the end of July in order to allow their Emmy-award winning editor to reach final cut. You can help the project reach completion by making a tax-deductible donation by check or online here
