NIRV Screen&Discuss brunch hosted by Showing-Up-for-Racial-Justice

September 23, 2020

Online from Boston, MA, October 4, 12:30-2:30 EST

Join Showing-Up-for-Racial-Justice (SURJ-Boston) and CSFilm for a discussion about the impact on immigrants and refugees of race relations, the current administration’s policies and budget cuts, and COVID.

The discussion will be informed by the voices of local activists and the screening of:

  • She’s an American Child, by Rafael DeLeon, about Annabelle, a Dominican DACA recipient – who will join us for the conversation – and her undocumented mother;
  • Seeking Settled Ground, by Mohammad Arifuzzaman, about the challenges and opportunities facing Anwar – a newly arrived Rohingya refugee.  We will be joined by Anwar’s resettlement case worker Rahmatullah Aka, from the International Institute of New England;
  • Worlds Apart at Home, by Abdirahman Abdi about the integration of Somali refugees in inner-city America. Abdi will also join the conversation.

Free and open to the public. Register here. You will receive an email with a Zoom link for the Brunch.

Michael called on FCTV to join him in working to educate the public about the importance of who selects and reports our news. Once the public starts hearing from more local voices we will begin to understand what the issues are that need to be addressed. We haven’t yet begun a dialogue based on good information.
