What Can I Do? Lecture Series
Haiti: The UNtold Story
(SONOMA STATE UNIVERSITY) – Associated Students Productions is proud to present the inaugural evening of the What Can I Do? Lecture Series featuring the Rohnert Park debut of Haiti: the UNtold Story on Wednesday, September 13 at 8 pm located in SSU’s Student Union MultiPurpose Room. The thought provoking and eye opening documentary will be followed by a question and answer period with journalist and director Kevin Pina and is free to all. 
Filmmaker Kevin Pina’s documentary shines a light on what he purports to be the hidden role of the international community in Hatian politics. The provocative and lively film takes the viewer into parts of Haiti where few Western journalists dare to tread and includes shocking footage of unreported human rights abuses. Pina’s documentary connects the tragic events in Haiti with what he assesses as foreign intervention designed to deter democracy. Associated Students Productions and the Student Union.

VENEZUELA – 
Social change in an oil-rich country

Come hear about Roger Harris’ visit with the Marin Interfaith Task Force on the Americas’ delegation to Venezuela. Roger's visuals illustrate the group's trips to barrios to observe the implementation of social programs; excursions to rural areas to see the agricultural cooperatives and the effects of land reform; visits with government officials to hear about their “Bolivarian Revolution”; meetings with human rights organizations to learn of their concerns; and experiences at the World Social Forum meeting held in Caracas.
