Roundup & Recap: James Cameron’s “Avatar” Earth Day

James Cameron will be the headliner at an April 22 celebration at the Nokia Theater in downtown Los Angeles marking the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. With tickets starting at $35 apiece, it’s billed as “the Official Global Avatar ‘Home Tree’ Celebration” and will feature cast members from the movie as well as a Q&A.

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) will kick off a Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian rally on Sunday to demand an end to Social Security discrimination against same-sex couples. They will march to the Hollywood office of Social Security, and Sanchez is expected to announce that she will introduce legislation to address the disparity. The effort is part of the center’s Rock for Equality campaign, which includes a video competition.

On Thursday evening, the Artists & Athletes Alliance is hosting the Haitian ambassador to the United States, Raymond Joseph, for a briefing on relief efforts at the Four Seasons Hotel on Doheny. David Gere is the moderator.

Also tomorrow evening, Scott Schmidt and Log Cabin California chairman Len Lanzi are holding a $100-per-person LGBT fund-raiser for Tom Campbell, running for the Republican nomination to challenge Boxer for her Senate seat.

With a Jack Abramoff documentary and feature film about to be released, there is rightful concern that the two films will be confused. One is called “Casino Jack” and the other is “Casino Jack and the United States of Money,” Politico reports.

Update: One Thursday evening event I forgot to mention: Generation for Change holds a celebration to mark the passage of healthcare reform at Coco de Ville on La Cienega, with free admission.
