Not In Our Town National Week of Action: Communities stand together against hate

As posted Monday on the website of NCDD org member Everyday Democracy:

Join communities across the country who are using a new PBS documentary to find ways to prevent hate crimes and anti-immigrant violence.

'WomanNot In Our Town: Light in the Darkness tells the story of residents of a Long Island village taking action after a local immigrant is killed in a hate crime attack by seven teenagers. While starkly revealing the trauma of hate, the film provides a blueprint for people who want to do something before intolerance turns to violence. The film airs nationwide on PBS stations on September 21. (Check local listings.)

As part of Not In Our Town National Week of Action, September 18-24, communities throughout the country will host screenings, events and discussions on hate crime prevention, working to develop new ways to make their towns safer.
