All in the Circle: Documentary

Thank you, thank you, thank you, for your presence and energy at our All in the Circle: Documentary Premiere & Benefit on Thursday! It was a wild success with more than 600 people in attendance! Check out pictures from our night and a highlight reel, by our director, Isaiah!

Premiere_Thank_You.jpgThank you so much for generosity. Together we raised $15,000! We are so grateful for your support.  You are ensuring this extraordinary camp grows to be offered to a wider circle of children and youth in the years to come! If you didn’t have a chance to give at the premiere, please click here to support All in the Circle.

We care for what we love; infusing children, youth, and adults with a felt sense of connection to each other and the natural world is key to the kind of transformation for which the climate crisis calls. Facilitating this kind of transformation is core to our mission at Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light.
