Anonymous street artists painted a dotted line and scissors on the defunct Matilija Dam in 2011. The dam has been slated for removal for years, but additional studies are being conducted to decide how best to deal with the trapped sediment and downstream water supply. Matilija Dam is owned by the County of Ventura, California in a scene from DAMNATION. Photo: Matt Stoecker

Since 2004, the MJC Civic Engagement Project has been a joint venture between the Yosemite Community College District, Associated Students of MJC (ASMJC) and the League of Women Voters of Modesto. The initiative is designed to bring together faculty, staff, students, and members of the community to develop a series of opportunities to educate and empower members of the Modesto Junior College and greater Modesto area community.

The Film and Lecture Series is designed to provide students and members of the community with the opportunity to engage in topics of social interest and relevance through the screening of thoughtful movies and by bringing speakers to the campus who have demonstrated knowledge on topics deemed to be of social significance.  Each film will be followed by a discussion with guest speakers or panelists.
