Film Screening and Discussion of Not in Our Town: Northern California with Executive Director, Patrice O'Neill
Monday, 3/5/2018 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The film, Not In Our Town Northern California, takes a regional look at five Northern California communities dealing with deadly hate violence over a five-year period. Together, the stories reveal that whether the motivation is racism, anti-Semitism, or crimes motivated by gender or sexual orientation, hate is the same. But Californians found innovative ways to respond when hate happens. Patrice O'Neill is a filmmaker, journalist and leader of Not In Our Town, a community-based movement of people working to stop hate together. She has produced the successful Not In Our Town film series which began as a half-hour PBS special and turned into a dynamic movement that continues to thrive in communities across the U.S. and around the world.
Following the film screening, Patrice O’Neill will lead the audience in a discussion on how to prevent and respond to incidents of hate and bigotry.
