What does your ZIP code have to do with your odds of surviving a deadly heat wave?

Join Uprooting Racism for this free virtual screening and discussion event! Cooked: Survival by ZIP Code (2018), a feature documentary by acclaimed director Judith Helfand, interweaves commentary on history, anti-Black racism, segregation, climate justice, and what counts as “newsworthy.”

How does this event work?

We are offering a 3-day streaming “viewing window” for the film, as well as a group discussion. The schedule for the “viewing window” and discussion is as follows:

  • Streaming “viewing window”: Friday, March 11 through Sunday, March 13, 2022 (link will be emailed to you closer to the “viewing window” date)
  • Film Discussion: Sunday, March 13, 2022 | 7:00-8:30pm Eastern on Zoom

Please note: a truncated version of Cooked: Survival by ZIP Code is available on PBS.org, but is missing approximately ⅓ of the film’s runtime (over 30 minutes are edited out). For this reason, we suggest you:

  • view the film through the streaming “viewing window,” and/or
  • rent the streaming documentary online (currently $3.99 on YouTube, Apple TV, Google Play, and Amazon Prime Video)

How do I sign up?

Please register here for a free “ticket” in order to receive the Zoom meeting codes in your email inbox. You’ll also receive reminder emails and information on how to access the “viewing window” leading up to the event dates!

Will there be ASL interpretation available for the discussion?

Yes! Please invite your Deaf friends and family who may be interested in participating.
