Event description

Description

Join us for a screening of two documentaries, Women, Peace & Power (23 min) and Naila and the Uprising (54 min) that follow the stories of women in Afghanistan, Liberia, Northern Ireland, and Israel & Palestine as they work to influence political developments and peace processes in their countries.

The screenings will be followed by a discussion with Peace is Loud's Jamie Dobie, Just Vision's Suhad Babaa, and moderated by Our Secure Future's Sahana Dharmapuri.

Tickets are free and are on a first-come, first-served basis. Only 60 tickets are available. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and the program will begin promptly at 7 p.m.

About the Films:

Naila and the Uprising: Naila and the Uprising (Just Vision, 2017) chronicles the remarkable journey of Naila Ayesh and a fierce community of women at the frontlines, whose stories weave through the most vibrant, nonviolent mobilization in Palestinian history – the First Intifada in the late 1980s.

Women, Peace & Power: Women, Peace & Power follows the stories of female activists, politicians, and ordinary citizens in Afghanistan, Liberia, and Northern Ireland as they try to influence peace talks against all odds. While some of these peacebuilders use sit-ins and mass rallies to push for change, others win elections to negotiate at the peace table. All face challenges to their authority and legitimacy as they attempt to steer their countries away from war.
