Location: CSUSB/Pfau Library PL-4005 (4th Floor). Complimentary parking available at kiosk.
The John M. Pfau Library and Association of Latino Faculty, Staff, and Students present a screening of the film “Not in Our Town: Light in the Darkness.”
“Not In Our Town: Light in the Darkness” is a one-hour documentary about a town coming together to take action after anti-immigrant violence devastates the community. Developed by the Working Group in 1995, “Not in Our Town” began with a PBS documentary that told the story of how people in Billings, Montana, joined together to respond to a series of hate crimes in their town. This simple, powerful story of people banding together struck a chord with audiences, and created a model that inspired viewers around the country to hold their own campaigns against intolerance. You won’t want to miss this event!
Make sure to stay after the film for an in-depth discussion about what you will do to stop hate in your town.
