purple mountains college tour

POW founder and president (and legendary professional snowboarder) Jeremy Jones just announced his latest film, Purple Mountains, and we’re taking the film on tour this fall! Over the course of six weeks, beginning September 21, we’ll host virtual screenings of Purple Mountains, and Jeremy himself, along with key members of our Athlete Alliance, will be on-hand to answer questions and talk about the importance of the film. 

Motivated by an urge to protect the places he loves, Jeremy set out on a physical and philosophical journey to find common ground with fellow outdoors people across diverse political backgrounds. He learns their hopes and fears while walking a mile in their shoes on the mountain and in the snow. See what Jeremy found out by tuning into a virtual screening of Purple Mountains in your area. Below, you’ll find links to sign up for each of our six tour stops. We hope to see you there!

Movie Night

Host a screening of Jeremy Jones’ new film, Purple Mountains, which outlines Jones’ journey to answer the question of why the topic of climate change is so divisive. After the screening, work with everyone who attended to fill out the Make A Plan To Vote Tool.
