This Saturday, November 19, the International Socialist Organization (ISO) is hosting a presentation and public discussion entitled "How Do We Fight Racism?" The event features Chicago author and activist Keeyanga-Yamahtta Taylor as the lead speaker. This will be held at the Wilson Park Shelterhouse (also known as the Caldwell Community Center Annex), at 2 PM.
December 10, by coincidence or NSM design, is International Human Rights Day.
Human Values for Transformative Action (HVTA) is planning a film on that day from 1:00 to 3:30 PM, at the Main Library. The film is titled "Promises", and is about seven children living in diverse areas of Israel and Palestine. PBS writes the following about the film:
Through candid interviews, the film explores a legacy of distrust and bitterness, but signs of hope emerge when some of the children dare to cross the checkpoints to meet one another.This is a good opportunity for people to do something besides heckle the brownshirts when they return.
