The film “Women Will Renew,” created by MCC Multimedia Producer Christy Kauffman, tells the story of two community leaders who are committed to empowering women and providing clean energy solutions within their community in Mwenezi District, Zimbabwe.

Following the 15-minute film will be a discussion and Q&A with the film's producer and climate advocates from MCC and the local Harrisonburg community. Conversation will focus on how you and your congregation or community can take local action to care for creation and support MCC as we accompany our partners who are impacted by climate change.

PLUS, MCC staff will provide an outdoor demonstration featuring a fuel-efficient stove, like the ones featured in the film, that MCC staff brought to the U.S. from Zimbabwe. Come see firsthand the difference it makes over the traditional three-stone cooking method!

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is optional but encouraged.
