Monday, January 28th, passionate members of the Greater DC community congregated at Miriam Gennari’s home for the inaugural Alliance to Regional Cooperation. This exciting, new nonprofit is being led by Jim Schulman, architect for over three decades and dedicated to creating buildings created with material reuse.
This organization will focus on the DC region, ensuring that the environmental and social needs of all our communities will be met. They will develop projects with business clients that allow to them meet their bottom-line and provide significant community value. They also hope to grow connections between communities and businesses. This will strengthen local economies, build resilience and improve standards of living for the most vulnerable.
The meeting kicked off with a screening of StyrofoamMom: The Movie, which will be submitted to the Environmental Film Festival for consideration. In attendance was Arlington’s Dr. Michael Murtha who gave us this glowing review:
Dr. Michael Murtha
“The film was very valuable in addressing an important environmental issue and is very well made. I have seen dozens of environmental films over the years and this is one of the best. 5 Stars!”
