Not In Our Town National Week of Action: Communities Stand Together Against Hate
Date: September 18–24
More Information: www.niot.org
Communities nationwide are using a new PBS documentary, Not In Our Town: Light in the Darkness, to find ways to prevent hate crimes and anti-immigrant violence.
The film 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. 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.
