Not in Our Town: Light into Darkness (Film) – Virtual Screening on July 16, 7 – 9 PM
Not In Our Town: Light In The Darkness follows a community in crisis after the fatal attack of a local immigrant resident. Stunned by the violence, diverse community stakeholders openly confront the crime and the divisive atmosphere and commit to ongoing actions to prevent future hate crimes and intolerance.
Join us for a discussion of the current situation and how we might address these issues. The CSRA Coalition for Immigrant Rights will provide information on the Welcoming America Movement and upcoming Welcoming Week activities.
About the Series:
The League of Women Voters of the CSRA in partnership with the Unitarian Universalist Church of Augusta Social Justice Committee, the CSRA Coalition for Immigrant Rights and ACLU People Power Augusta, GA is bringing a series of thought-provoking social justice-themed films to the CSRA in 2020. Each 3-month block will focus on one topic – breaking down the complex issues for easier discussion.
This movie series is designed to focus on important social issues being faced today. The aim of the series is to facilitate dialogue to enhance informed communication, personal responsibility, and social responsibility. Each film screening incorporates a discussion with invited community organizers and/or experts. All events in the series are free admission and open to the public.
